Harsher sentences for attempted murder
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Attempted murder is considered to be one of the most serious types of crimes against a person.
Anyone who commits murder, attempted murder or manslaughter can be sentenced to life in prison. However, courts can decide on a what sentences they give out.
Judges in Australia need to not be so weak in their sentencing and give a set sentencing.
Attempted murder is the attempt to unlawfully kill another person by any means, act or omission.
Monsters like these need to be sentenced just like a murder charge.
This includes anyone who was involved, hindered investigations, assisted in keeping information from police etc. These people should also be given the same sentencing .
Currently attempted murder sentences range between 13 to 17 years. An unsuccessful attempt to kill another person can result in a maximum sentence of 17 years’ imprisonment.
Attempted Murder by association even if you don’t actually kill a person, you can still be charged with associated crimes if you’ve helped someone commit his or her crime. In serious cases, attempted murder by association is punishable with a life sentence.
Lets sign this petition and lock these monsters up along with anyone who knew or assisted.
