Give This Fire Boy A Real Sentence
- Crown Prosecution Sevice
- United Kingdom
Last year a young lad pleaded guilty to manslaughter after setting fire to the front door of my mothers flat. She lived in a high rise block on the 14th floor. She suffered burns and smoke inhalation, after 3 months in critical care sadley we lost her. The lads resposible were found and charged with her murder.They all pleaded not guilty, but one lad pleaded guilty to manslaughter. Two of the lads were found not guilty of manslaughter so all that was left was for the sentencing of the lad who pleaded guilty. He was on conditional bail for over a year and was eventually sentenced on Friday 17th.He was sentenced to a 3 yr supervision order on the grounds that he was a reformed character and unrecognisable from the person he was when he committed the crime. So what I make of that is that he took my mothers life last year but because he's been a good boy they're not going to punish him. How fair is that? We are hoping that the CPS will appeal against such a lenient sentence, if they don't then I am hoping that this petition will help persuade them otherwise. Thank you for taking the time to read this all support is greatly appreciated.
I support the family and believe the Crown Prosecution Service should appeal against such a lenient sentence
