Sentence Increase For “One Punch Manslaughter”

252 Signatures | Petition Ended

Created February 22, 2012 by Therese

After my son Robert Holland was killed by being punched once and the aggressor received a maximium on a guilty plea of three & half years i would like to try and get crimminal justice system to review the sentencing guidance. This sentence needs to match the gravity of the offence. We the undersigned would like to see the criminal justice system change to reflect a greater sentencing regime with regards to the crime of ‘one punch manslaughter’, that currently carries a maximum of five to seven years but with a guilty plea is submitted a maximuim of three to four years, which is a far lesser tariff than that for robbery.

    This is shocking. If you murder someone you should be locked up for life or even better executed!

    I have read your story in thats life I am so sorry that your son was taken from you in this maliciouse way, I have a son and I would be beside myself if some thug did this to my son, I think the law is a joke I believe if you take a life you give a life, bring back hanging that is what I say. or at least give punishment fit for the crime.

    I have friends that suffered a dreadful loss in a case of “one punch” assault & am more than happy to see this issue raised…the sentence was similar to your case & is wholly inadequate given the devastation caused. I wish you well in your aim to raise the sentencing for these animals.

    Sad to hear about your son but its also sad to say its a never ending crime in this country as our judicial system is an absolute joke
    I personally do not forsee any changes in stiffer sentencing until we get mps and judges with any kind of sense and compassion
    I will gladly sign any petition what increases punishment but should we have to?
    The sentence that piece of scum got is just a joke
    You hear it time and time again judges passing down pathetic sentences
    A decent government would step in and stop this
    Life should mean life
    Will never happen while we have weaklings like cameron in charge
    Sorry to ramble but storys like yours makes my blood boil
    Take care and hope something good comes from your petitiion i really hope so
    Sean
