Ministry of Justice written question – answered on 5th December 2017.
Alert me about debates like this
Whether there are plans to review sentencing guidelines for rape committed by people under 18.
Sentencing guidelines are not set by the Ministry of Justice. They are set by the independant Sentencing Council.
I can however confirm, new guidelines on sentencing under 18s for sexual offences came into effect in June.
