This is a petition calling for the sentence of the rapist of a 2year old in Tennant Creek, NT to have his sentence reviewed and potentially increased to meet the reasonable expectation of society that these offenders will be dealt the maximum penalty, life imprisonment, the law allows. 

As reported by the ABC:

A 27-year-old Tennant Creek man has been sentenced to 13 years in prison for the rape of a toddler in the Northern Territory town in 2018.

The man, who has been in custody since his arrest, appeared before the Alice Springs Supreme Court on Friday and pleaded guilty to raping the girl on February 15, 2018.

Crown prosecutor Glen Dooley told the court that the offender entered the home of the girl, removed her from the lounge room where she was sleeping and took her to the bedroom where he raped her. He then placed her back in the lounge room.

"This is a crime that deeply disturbed the Tennant Creek community and the nation," Mr Dooley said.

Any self respecting member of the community should join me in calling for a review of the sentence and do what the sentencing judge remarked  "I need to pass a sentence that sends a strong message … that tells people that if they commit such crimes against children they will go to prison for a very long time”

Make the protection of these vulnerable members of our community our highest priority and let them know that they are valued and that we stand with them! 

Thanks for your support!
