Stalking Sentences increased to 10 years

January 6, 2017

Thanks to MPs Alex Chalk & Richard Graham plus other campaigners in this field, stalking will now have a maximum sentence of 10 years, instead of the 5 it has been.  It is great news and sends a clearer message that a perpetrator may end up serving a long time.  It is important, however, that training takes place from the police to the judiciary and beyond so that stalking behaviour is better understood and the potential implications if it is not taken seriously.

This is my interview on Sky News this morning.
