  • Reduced sentence after a guilty plea could end for 'bang to rights' criminals news

    Criminals who are “bang to rights” will no longer be given discounted prison sentences if they plead guilty under proposals being considered by the Government, the Telegraph understands. Robert Buckland, the Justice Secretary, is studying plans to end the current practice of automatically giving convicted criminals a third off their sentences if they plead guilty the first time they are asked in court. The move comes amid a public outcry after one of the teenage killers of PC Andrew Harper had his sentence reduced by eight years to 16 years because of his guilty plea to manslaughter and his age. Ministers fear that the third-off rule may be undermining confidence in the criminal justice system and is being exploited by offenders caught in the act but who know they can reduce their sentence by a third by pleading guilty. “If you get caught red-handed killing someone, say on camera, should you really get a third off for pleading guilty?” said a source. “The rule is designed to help victims so they don’t have to go through the stress of giving evidence. What it is not supposed to be is for criminals to exploit it by seeing they are ‘bang to rights’ and then game the system for their own benefit. “That’s where it is open to exploitation for the wrong reasons. It’s then benefiting the criminals rather than the victims.” It is understood the policy is likely to be initially focused on murder and manslaughter but could be extended to other serious offences. It was being considered before the sentencing of PC Harper’s killers. The rules, introduced in 2016, give judges a sliding scale, starting with a third-off, followed by one-fifth if the criminal pleads guilty later but before the first day of the trial and one tenth if they change their plea on the first day. It is a zero reduction for any time later.
