Campaign Leads to Review of Sentencing Guidelines for Drivers

A campaign by the family of Jamie Butcher from Wisbech, who was killed by speeding driver in February 2011, has led to an announcement that guidelines on sentencing deadly drivers will be now be reviewed.

The announcement has been welcomed by Brake – the road safety charity.

The campaign, named Justice for Jamie, called for tougher punishments for bad drivers, including longer sentences for drivers who kill to reflect the seriousness of the crime and to act as a deterrent. This followed the sentencing of Jamie’s killer who was given just 43 months in jail.
