Five-year jail terms for animal cruelty crimes are planned by Gove as offenders continue to get off lightly

  • Environment Secretary wants max term of six months increased dramatically
  • Since 2005, 12 in every 13 people convicted for animal cruelty avoided jail
  • One in four animal cruelty cases is punished with only a fine
Cruelty to animals will be punished with up to five years in prison under plans drawn up by Michael Gove

Cruelty to animals will be punished with up to five years in prison under plans drawn up by Michael Gove

Cruelty to animals will be punished with up to five years in prison under plans drawn up by Michael Gove.

The Environment Secretary is taking action after a string of offenders escaped lightly despite inflicting appalling harm on pets or livestock. He wants the maximum term of six months – one of the lowest in Europe – to be increased dramatically.

Mr Gove said last night: ‘We are a nation of animal lovers and I want to ensure that those who commit the most shocking cruelty to animals face suitably tough punishments.

‘These plans will give courts the tools they have requested to deal with the most abhorrent acts.’

His officials have discussed the plan with the Ministry of Justice, which sets sentencing policy. The move will be announced by Mr Gove in his Tory Party conference speech on Monday.

Detailed policy proposals will be published around the turn of the year.

Officials said the change would require primary legislation, but expect the law to come into force next year. There is unlikely to be opposition within Parliament.

David Bowles of the RSPCA said: ‘We are thrilled to hear that the Government has responded to calls from the RSPCA and members of the public and is considering toughening up sentences for the worst animal abusers.

Brothers filmed sickening cruelty to pet bulldog pup

This sickening image shows Andrew Frankish choking his young pet bulldog against the wall while his brother Daniel films the abuse.

The pair laughed as he also headbutted the dog, called Baby, hurled it down stairs, swung it round and stood and jumped on it.

But both were spared jail.

Baby lost the use of her hind legs and had to be put to sleep three months after the assaults in October 2013.

The pair, from Redcar, North Yorkshire, admitted causing the dog suffering when they appeared before Hartlepool magistrates and got 21 weeks in prison, suspended for two years, as well as a six-month curfew.

An online petition calling for a tougher punishment attracted more than 90,000 signatures.

‘We feel that, should sentences be increased, those who commit these acts will soon be receiving sentences that reflect the seriousness of their crime. We hope this will act as a real deterrent against cruelty and neglect.

‘The RSPCA picks up the pieces of animal cruelty every day of the year. Our inspectors regularly rescue animals from horrific circumstances of mistreatment, brutality and neglect.’

A study from the Centre for Crime Prevention found that prison is very rarely used in animal cruelty cases – and non-custodial sentences are becoming more lenient.

The report found that, since 2005, 12 in every 13 people convicted for cruelty to animals avoided prison. Of the 13,862 convicted or handed cautions, just 1,063 received a prison sentence.

In the same period, the number of suspended prison sentences for animal cruelty rose sharply.

In 2005, just ten offenders were handed suspended jail terms, compared with 160 last year. One in four animal cruelty cases is punished with only a fine and the average penalty has halved in real terms. In 2005 it stood at £479 but fell to just £296 last year.

In his foreword to the crime prevention report, Conservative MP Ranil Jayawardena argued that ‘bad people are still getting away with it’.

Suspended sentences or fines have recently been given to those who have starved a dog to death, strangled a cat and threw it in the bin and two young men who filmed themselves throwing a bulldog down the stairs so many times that she had to be put down.

Research also suggests that offenders who commit animal cruelty offences are far more likely to carry out other violent crimes. The six-month maximum term was set more than 100 years ago in 1911 by the Protection of Animals Act.

The last Labour government passed the Animal Welfare Act in 2006 which allowed for jail sentences of up to a year – but the measure was never brought into force.

Earlier this year, Claire Horton, the chief executive of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, said: ‘Six months in prison for the gravest act of animal cruelty, such as torturing an animal to death, is a fraction of the maximum sentence for fly tipping or theft.

‘So let’s get this into proportion and let the punishment for abusing animals truly fit the crime.’

The change would apply to England and Wales only. In Scotland the maximum sentence is 12 months and it is five years in Northern Ireland.

Offenders face jail terms of up to five years in the Republic of Ireland, three years in Germany and two years in France.

Prince Andrew is running out of time

Prince Andrew is running out of time to persuade his family he is an important Royal Team Windsor: The appearance of the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Cambridges and Prince Harry on the Buckingham Palace alongside the Queen for her Diamond Jubilee Celebrations in 2012 was widely interpreted as the unveiling of the slimmed-down “five-a-side” Royal Family that will follow the succession. (Photo: Getty) Cahal Milmo 1 day Friday September 29th 2017 As he toured Australia to flag-waving crowds this week, the Duke of York could not be accused of failing to pay sufficient attention to the select group of locals looking to benefit from his championing of the entrepreneurial spirit. The prince listened assiduously as schemes presented under his Apprentice-style “Pitch@Palace” project to mentor future moguls made their bids for victory. Among them were a natural remedy for cold sores, houses made from recycled plastic and an app that allows anxious parents to keep an eye on their offspring’s efforts to save for a house deposit. Accommodation bills The Queen’s middle son might have spied a domestic use for the latter. ADVERTISING His daughters, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, are said to be keen for a change of scenery from their previous digs in St James’s Palace, with Eugenie heading for a cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace close to her cousins, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry. “The Duke of York has a period of time in which he needs to reassert himself as an enduringly effective royal. That process has begun but like any parent he wants hand over to his children some form of appreciation and status.” Royal source on the dilemma faced by Prince Andrew But the trials and tribulations of paying his offspring’s accommodation bills may be the least of HRH’s concerns. As the announcement of a third baby for the Cambridges pushes him yet further down the line of royal succession – and, crucially, relevance – Prince Andrew is facing a race against time to persuade either his mother or his elder brother that he is a must-have member of the Firm. Slow-motion war of succession Behind the scenes of a modernising Royal Family – conspicuously led of late less by the likes of Pitch@Palace and more by forthright interventions in issues from mental health to legalising drugs by Prince William and his brother – is a slow-motion war of succession over the workings of the “slimmed down” monarchy that will emerge when Prince Charles ascends the throne. i has been told that one feature of the beginning of the reign of Charles III will be the launch of a review of the monarch’s finances, in particular the two streams of the monarch’s income used to finance costs that include “meeting expenses incurred by other members of the Royal Family”. The review, which may impact the amount of work undertaken by royals outside the new line up of Team Windsor “galacticos” understood to be favoured by the Prince of Wales, is part of the largely unseen struggle to mould the future shape of the monarchy. Furious denial This burst into the open when claims emerged that the Queen’s most senior official advisor, Sir Christopher Geidt, had been pushed out of his role against his will this summer following pressure on the Queen from the Duke and his brother, Prince Charles. The assertion drew a furious denial on behalf of Prince Charles, who turns 70 next year, from Clarence House and a rare joint statement from the Royal Households insisting that there is an “ever-closer working relationship” between all the branches of the House of Windsor. The spat followed an even more eyebrow-raising public foray by the Duke of York in December last year when he circumvented the royal PR machine and took direct to Twitter to publicly deny any rift between himself and his elder brother over the roles and future royal status of Eugenie and Beatrice. Prince Andrew was particularly irked by what he described as the “complete fabrication” of claims that he had asked for any future husbands of his daughters to be granted titles to preserve their royal status. Perpetuation of the monarchy Talk of a “feud” between the brothers is indeed most likely hyperbolic – they are said to get on better than is widely reported. But it is an unspoken rule of the business of being a royal that all such bonds are subordinate to the bigger matter of perpetuating the monarchy itself, including how it dispenses its sizable income. Alongside the Sovereign Grant (the lump sum paid by the Treasury to meet the Queen’s official expenses which will next year rise to £82m), the monarch receives the so-called Privy Purse (income from the portfolio of land, property and other assets known as the Duchy of Lancaster) and income from an undisclosed body of personal wealth estimated to be worth up to £330m. It is these two latter pots of cash that are used to pay for outgoings such as the office at Buckingham Palace which co-ordinates the official duties of the Duke of York, and his adjoining apartment. ‘You would expect a new chief executive to look at the books’ A source with knowledge of preparations for the succession told i: “If a company gets a new chief executive you would expect him or her to want to have a look at the books wouldn’t you? There will be an exercise to assess the  financial situation as you would expect when there is any major change at the top of an organisation of the size of the Royal Household.” The source added that it was expected that the expenses of members of the Royal Family, including the Princess Royal, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, would continue to be met. Despite Prince Andrew’s protests that fraternal relations are satisfactory, a review of this type is likely to be the cause of some consternation in Royal Lodge, the mansion on the edge of Windsor Park where the duke lives with his ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, after striking a deal in 2004 to fund renovations costing £5m. Crucial question A crucial question remains at what level the Duke of York and his siblings will be called upon to perform frontline royal duties and, thereby, what it means for their income and status. The departure of Sir Christopher was attributed at least in part to Prince Andrew’s antipathy towards the courtier arising from his role in the duke’s removal as an official trade envoy following controversy over his relationship with the American convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Brothers in alms: Despite reports of a feud, Prince Charles and Prince Andrew are said to get on better than their tabloid personas suggest. But plans for a “slimmed-down” monarchy have raised fresh questions about the future role to be played by the Duke of York and his siblings, including the financing of their officials duties (Photo: Getty) The Epstein episode was one of a number of links with unsavoury businessmen or potentates, from Kazakh billionaires to relatives of authoritarian North African rulers, that have earned Prince Andrew unwelcome headlines over the years and caused embarrassment further up the royal food chain. Salacious allegations The Duke had to provide his mother – for whom he has long been a favourite – with a personal assurance that there was no basis to the salacious allegations made by a young woman named Virginia Roberts, who claimed that Epstein had groomed her as an under-age prostitute. A judge later ordered that the allegations concerning Prince Andrew, which were strongly denied, be struck from the record. Of more import, however, seems to have been Sir Christopher’s adherence to the idea of a “slimmed down monarchy” in which Beatrice and Eugenie, who both have the HRH title but are pursuing careers in business and the art world respectively, were to have no formal royal role. Sources acknowledged that the former intelligence officer’s insistence that there be no formal future role for the princesses had caused “tension” between Buckingham Palace and Royal Lodge. Velvet-lined subs bench The fly in the ointment for the Duke of the York is that his brother holds pretty much the same “vision” of the future House of Windsor – a lean regal operation in which Buckingham Palace serves as a sort of corporate headquarters and an inner core of royals perform the lion’s share of duties. The infamous 2012 Diamond Jubilee balcony line-up – in which, at the instigation of Prince Charles, only the heir to the throne, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Cambridges and Prince Harry appeared alongside the Queen – is now widely regarded as the official unveiling of the new five-a-side Team Windsor that will take to the public field after the succession – a crack squad of HRH galacticos with others relegated to a velvet-lined subs bench. As one royal source put it: “It is easy to think this is some sort of medieval power struggle. The reality is more prosaic – the Duke of York has a period of time in which he needs to reassert himself as an enduringly effective royal. “That process has begun but like any parent he wants to hand over to his children some form of appreciation and status. He is sincere when he says he wants the princesses to be ‘modern, working, young women’. But there is a need for a new deal and if his brother isn’t going to provide it, he needs to make a persuasive case to his mother.” Royal brand The sense of the York family making its case anew as compelling purveyors of the royal brand was increased this week by the re-emergence of the duke’s wife into public life. The Duchess of York, 57, marked her new role as an ambassador for the British Heart Foundation with a donation of high-end hand-me-downs to highlight the charity’s fundraising campaign and an interview in Hello! magazine. Seeking to put behind her the wounds, many of them self-inflicted, that have previously scarred her public persona, the duchess said: “It’s a massive step – bigger than anyone can imagine.” If nothing else, the march of the House of York is unlikely to be a dull spectacle. On being royal – what Team Windsor have to say Prince Harry On the future of the House of  Windsor: “We are involved in modernising the British monarchy. We are not doing this for ourselves but for the greater good of the people. Is there any one of the royal family who wants to be king or queen? I don’t think so, but we will carry out our duties at the right time.” He added: “The monarchy is a force for good and we want to carry on the positive atmosphere that the Queen has achieved for over 60 years, but we won’t be trying to fill her boots.” (Newsweek, June 2017) Duchess of York Speaking to Hello! about  parenting and the York family dynamic: “I think the one thing I have done incredibly well – although I say it myself – is that I’m a really good mum and I think that my girls show that.” She added: “A table goes best with four legs. A table can’t stand on three legs, really, so you have the Duke and I and the two girls. We’re a family unit and we lead by example. We support each other emotionally and we support each other healthwise. At least every two weeks we sit down together and communicate, all four of us. We talk about what we’re doing, about our work and about our health.” (Hello!, September 2017) Duke of York Statement issued in December concerning media claims of a schism with the Prince of Wales: “It is a complete fabrication to suggest I have asked for any future husbands of the Princesses to have titles. There is no truth to the story that there could be a split between The Prince of Wales and I over my daughters’ participation as Members of the Royal Family and any continued speculation is pointless. “As a father, my wish for my daughters is for them to be modern, working, young women, who happen to be members of the Royal Family, and I am delighted to see them building their careers. When they do support the Royal Family in its work this is very much appreciated by my family… Whilst I appreciate, as Granddaughters of The Queen, there is considerable interest in my daughters, I cannot continue to stand by and have the media speculate on their futures based on my purported interventions, which are completely made up and an invention.” (Statement, December 2016) Prince Charles On being king: “Sometimes you daydream about the sort of things you might do…. I think you could invest the position with something of your own personality and interest but obviously within the bounds of constitutional propriety.” (Interview with Jonathan Dimbleby, 1994) Sir Alan Reid, Keeper of the Privy Purse Defending an eight per cent increase in the amount received by the monarchy from public funds via the Sovereign Grant: “When you look at these accounts, the bottom line is the Sovereign Grant last year equated to 65p per person, per annum, in the United Kingdom. That’s the price of a first class stamp. “Consider that against what the Queen does and represents for this country, I believe it represents excellent value for money.” (Statement, June 2017) Royal Households statement following claims that Sir Christopher Geidt, the Queen’s private secretary, was forced out of office “Recent years have seen an ever-closer working relationship between all the different Royal Households and their respective teams. “The Prince of Wales and the entire Royal Family are committed to supporting The Queen in whatever way they can at Her Majesty’s request. Beyond that, we are not going to engage with a story based on rumours from unnamed sources.” (Statement, September 2017) Get daily news updates Subscribe to the newsletter Sign up today Subscribe to the National Newspaper Of The Year Find out more   by Taboola Promoted Links  Explore More

Baby P’s Mum Could Be Free By Christmas


35 year old, Tracey Connelly, was jailed in 2009 for allowing her lover and his brother to torture her baby to death.
Her baby, Peter, was found dead in 2007, he had suffered more than 50 injuries.

If she can convince parole that she is no longer a danger to the public, she could be free by Christmas.

In 2015, the Parole Board said the she was still a risk to the public and said she was be eligible for a further review in 2017.

When she returned to prison a second time she earned enhanced status meaning she could spend more money on treats, her representatives have said the parole board will take this into account.

St John’s mourns for honorary church warden Sir Jimmy Savile

CALDERDALE was mourning the loss of broadcasting legend Sir Jimmy Savile on what would have been his 85th birthday yesterday.

The Jim’ll Fix It icon, famed for his eccentric dress sense and huge cigars, was found dead at his home in Roundhay, Leeds, on Saturday.

The late Sir Jimmy Savile was an honourary warden at St John's church, Cragg Vale, which he raised thousands of pounds for over the years. He is pictured outside the church on September 28, 1991. The broadcasting legend was found dead at his home in Leeds on Saturday October 29, two days before what would have been his 85th birthday

Sir Jimmy, a devoted supporter of good causes, was an honorary warden at St John’s Church in Cragg Vale, which he raised thousands of pounds for over the years.

The Rev James Allison said he had attended a service there as recently as six months ago and would talk proudly of his honourary role.

“He never announced he was coming, I would just look up and there he’d be in all his glory, usually wearing a shellsuit and everything,” he said.

“He was lovely – a really nice man. We are very sad to have lost him. He was a good friend of the church.”

Sir Jimmy began fund-raising there in 1967 when his friend, the Rev David Bennett, enlisted his help to raise £8,000 for a new vicarage. The veteran presenter returned regularly to lead 10-mile sponsored walks in aid of the church and other good causes in Calderdale until the late 1970s.

His lengthy TV career had its roots in Calderdale, with one of his first stints on screen in the 1947 film A Boy, A Girl And A Bike, about a fictional cycling club based in Hebden Bridge.

Sir Jimmy, then a racing cyclist with Leeds Olympic Club, appeared as an extra alongside members of Halifax Road Racing Club.

Derek Browne, honorary president of the Halifax club, said: “This was possibly his first taste of being involved in showbusiness.”

After riding in the first Tour of Britain in 1951, he became a race commentator – the launchpad for his broadcasting career. “I think that gave him a feel for it,” said Mr Browne.

“He really could hold an audience captivated.

“He was a one-off. He could talk the hind leg off a donkey.”

In 1958, Sir Jimmy became a DJ on pirate radio station Radio Luxembourg, where he made his name.

He later became one of the first DJs on BBC Radio 1 and launched Top of the Pops in 1964.

He will be best remembered for making hundreds of people’s dreams come true on Jim’ll Fix It, which ran from 1975 to 1994.

Among them was Queensbury woman Sharon Sadofski, who met her hero Les Mc-Keown on the BBC1 show.

Sir Jimmy fixed it for her to meet the Bay City Rollers singer at a TV studio in London, where he performed a medley of hits for her.

Mrs Sadofski, 47, said: “I shed a tear for Jimmy when I heard.

“It’s so sad. He was a lovely man. He was so nice and he did a marvellous thing for me.”

Man arrested for ‘beating his daughter’s abusive boyfriend to death’

Dearld Peal was arrested with his friend Terry Price on kidnapping and murder charges1
Dearld Peal was arrested with his friend Terry Price on kidnapping and murder charges

Mythili Sampathkumar

A man has been arrested for allegedly beating to death his daughter’s abusive boyfriend, police said.

Anthony Pietrzak was found bound at the arms and legs and beaten three miles from the home he shared with Dearld Peal’s daughter near Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The victim’s family said the couple were expecting a child next month.

Both Mr Peal and his friend, Tracy Price, were arrested on kidnapping and first-degree murder charges.

Officer Jeanne Mackenzie told the Associated Press that Mr Peal’s daughter had asked him to supposedly commit the crime because Mr Pietrzak was physically abusing her.

Mr Price’s involvement in the alleged crime remains unclear.

In an affidavit signed by Mr Peal, he said “that [Mr Pietrzak] would never be able to hurt his daughter again”.

However, he also said he was not there when the homicide occurred.

Ms Mackenzie said police are investigating if a third person was involved in Mr Pietrzak’s death.

The girlfriend’s name has not yet been released and she has not been charged with a crime.
