None of these people who used violence were sent to prison like they should have been. We all know that there are no where near enough prison places available, a situation that has been getting worse for years and years and to stop this become a crisis sentences have continually been reduced. We all know that there is no money to build new prisons. The solution is add an additional financial charge to all offenders for a Prison Building Programme.of £100 each.

Splendid idea, I’ve always thought that malefactors should contribute to the costs of their apprehension and conviction. Why should I have to pay for their misdeeds?

Much worse, 20 MTH ban for 166 Hendra, that’s 4 and a half times the limit. Joke…he wouldn’t have known where he was, let alone knowing if he had hit someone…

The 166 reading was from blood for which the limit is 80… so just over twice the limit. Doesn’t make it any better however…

Yes and they are just those who are caught,how many more are driving around drunk/drugged. If there was a proper punishment they wouldn’t do it but as always softly softly on the criminal and sod the victim they are bound to run over in time

What I would like to know is, why are the drink drivers sentenced differently, surely drink driving should all carry the same sentences and not be so varied,
