Review of UK sentencing guidelines for child sex offenders

This petition had 11,263 supporters

The legal system would appear to be too lenient on paedophiles.
Many repeat offenders with dozens of convictions only get suspended prison sentences.
This is not only no deterrent but also leaves them free to re-offend.
I would like this reviewed as it is outdated.

I am aware of a paedophile who was convicted of grooming a 13 year old girl online who he planned to have sex with.
This was his 27th offence and he received an 8 month prison sentence, suspended for 2 years. I do not feel this is justice for his victim(s).
This is just one of a catalogue of child sex offenders who are getting off too lightly and repeatedly putting vulnerable children in danger.

I have the backing of my local MP and will not stop until there is change, but I need as many signatures as possible to see change.  Thank you.
