Harsher punishment for sex offenders

This petition had 631 supporters

a sexual act against a child is a horrific and tramatizing thing, yet these offenders are given light sentences. our laws need to change to protect our children and others against these people. Regardless of a first offence they need to have mandatory jail time for violating an innocent child. Repeat offenders need to be given federal time. A childs innocence is taken, and their lives are forever changed, why are these criminals given such light sentences when victims lives have been ruined forever. We need to be aggressive when it comes to sentencing these individuals, since they violated a person. Such light sentences gives them the opportunity and reason to reoffend. Our legal system needs a zero tolerance for sex crimes! this is far too common when it should be viewed as a heinous crime. Mandatory jail time for a first offender will allow individuals to get the help they clearly need and give the system a chance to see who is likely to reoffend and protect the public from them. Lets protect our children and everyone around us from these predators
