Death Penalty for Child Sex Offenders

Target: The Hon Julia Gillard MP
Region: Australia

Petition Background (Preamble):

It is 2011 and Australia is still in the dark ages when it comes to the sentencing of criminals, in particular those who commit sex crimes against children.

In a recent trial a judge in Victoria sentenced a woman who had incestual sex with her son for and allowing her husband to repeatedly molest her daughter for five years and three months and ordered she serve two years and three months before being eligible for parole.

This message shows the Australian public as well as the rest of the world that sex offences against children are not of much concern to our judicial system.

We need to call on the PM to bring back the death penalty and harsher sentencing for sex offenders.


We, the undersigned, call on the Prime Minister of Australia The Hon Julia Gillard to reinstate the death penalty for all convicted child sex offenders.
