JUSTICE FOR GEORGE PETITION
Due to media reports many will be aware of the 10 year sentence handed to George Powell regarding his metal detection find of ancient treasure but the said reports omit the fact that the treasure was duly surrendered by George as legally required. (see link)
Many people consider this 10 year sentence to be very harsh, unfair and unacceptable and thus has brought about a massive public hue and cry especially as comparisons are made to very lenient sentences awarded for crimes of a far more serious nature - child sex offences to name but one! As the people we would like to petition this harsh sentence and appeal for  leniency towards a lighter, appropriate and therefore fair sentence. Hence a petition for signatures will be circulated via social media. If as stated George has "cheated the people" then surely we the people have an entitlement to an opinion. Please support this cause by signing the petition as every signiture is vital.
With gratitude.
