Title
Harsher penalties for child abuse perpetrators
Grievance
The Petition of certain citizens of the State of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that our current laws around child protection are barley protecting our children. Many offenders are being let off and a majority re-offend. It is time we recognise that child abuse perpetrators are not able to be rehabilitated.
Action
The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council call on the Government to consider introducing harsher penalties for child abuse perpetrators, with minimum sentencing longer than 20 years.
