Petition Higher sentences for paedophiles.

The people of Jersey are sick and tired of seeing paedophiles either found guilty of abusing, or attempting to abuse, our children being handed lenient prison sentences (if any prison sentence) by the Jersey courts.

More details

We therefore demand the States of Jersey implement mandatory minimum prison terms for such offences, starting from a minimum of 3 years and change the signing of the Sex Offenders Register to life.

This is the only way we can deter paedophiles from harming our children and partaking in the vile downloading of indecent images and videos of children online.
