US: Repeat rapists to face life sentences







life sentencesA judge gave the judgement where criminals who commit a second serious sexual or violent offense will be given life sentences the “no third chance”. This would mean that criminals convicted of one of these offenses twice will spend either the rest of their life either in prison or on license in their community. This decision as long due considering the fact that 2nd time rapists were getting arrested more often. This applies from the day of the judgement for anybody who is a sexual fiend, offender or a rapist. A mandatory life sentence will mean if the repeat offender breaches the terms of that license at any point they could be immediately recalled to prison. Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, said: “The most serious criminals deserve the most severe sentences. That is why we have brought in a new mandatory life sentence for anyone convicted of a second very serious sexual or violent crime. Alongside murder this will be only time the courts must impose a mandatory life sentence.”
