Tougher sex offences sentences proposed


I was glad to read this article from the BBC website. 20 years ago my parents reported to police the years of abuse I suffered at the hands of a relative. Back then, the police did nothing. Nowadays we still have the situation where only 7% of reported sexual offences result in conviction. I went back to the police in spring of this year. The investigation is ongoing.


Something must be done. I’ve already paid a life sentence. No punishment could ever fit the crime, but to see that this is finally being taken seriously is great.
