You may have heard about the death of Jade Clark, a 16-year-old who was killed when she was hit by Brian Hampton, on the A31 while on her moped travelling to work in February 2013. Banned for drink-driving at the time, Hampton not only didn't stop, but he then attempted to cover up his involvement by having his car repaired and lying to his family. He was sentenced to six years in prison – two for causing Jade's death by careless driving and four years for perverting the course of justice.
He has now decided to appeal his sentence because he thinks it too severe. MAG thinks he should be locked up and the key thrown away.
This petition was created by Robert Parker when he heard the news. So far it has just over a thousand signatures which is not enough. It needs 10,000 to get noticed; and 100,000 to get to the point where it can't be ignored.
I would like to see it get that 100,000 signatures. Every signature counts.
