In November 2012 in Greenford, west London, 15 year olds Jiervon Bartlett and Nayed Hoque, who both had convictions for several previous violent crimes, mugged 85 year old partially sighted Paula Castle - an attack which led to the death of Mrs Castle, as she had received a serious head wound when the boys knocked her to the ground.
Neither of the boys have shown any remorse for this despicable crime, and have refused to apologise to the victim's family. The judge in the case sentenced them to six years in custody - BUT they will only have to serve half of that! So, as things stand, they will do only three years in jail for taking a life - that is unacceptable.
We, the undersigned, call on the Attorney General Dominic Grieve QC MP, to refer the cases of Jiervon Bartlett and Nayed Hoque to the Court of Appeal Of England And Wales, as we believe the sentences imposed by Mr Justice Fulford to be unduly lenient.
