Pesutto: Statement on Victorian sentencing

Thursday 27 August 2015

 

Statement on Victorian sentencing:

This man’s crimes over the years have absolutely disgusted and horrified Victorians who deserve a justice system that will protect them.

People like this should simply never be on the streets where they can commit such depraved crimes.

Enough is enough – soft approaches to these monsters never work.

That’s why more needs to be done to ensure that court sentences and bail decisions always put community safety first.

We have been calling on Daniel Andrews for nine months to muscle-up and adopt the Coalition’s law and order policies.

And if Mr Andrews is prepared to do that in good faith, then we stand ready to provide bi-partisan support for tougher sentencing and bail laws to better protect Victorians.
