unstar this property answer text <p>Sexual offences perpetrated against children are horrific crimes and the impact of these can have a lasting impact on victims and their families.</p><p> </p><p>Sentencing decisions are taken by our independent courts. They will take such decisions based on the full circumstances of the offence and offender, and consider the relevant sentencing guidelines. The independent Sentencing Council has produced definitive guidelines on sexual offences.</p><p> </p><p>There are a range of offences someone can be convicted of if they abuse a child. Life imprisonment is available for the most serious offences, such as the rape of a child under the age of 13. For certain child sexual abuse offences, extended determinate sentences can be imposed for the purposes of public protection. There are no plans to increase maximum penalties available for child sexual abuse offences.</p><p> </p><p>Average custodial sentences for sexual offences overall are increasing, and have gone up from 43 months in 2007 to just under 60 months in 2017. The number of prisoners serving a custodial sentence for a sexual offence has nearly trebled, from 4,795 (in June 1998) to 13,580 (in 2018).</p>

This new analysis estimates as of 30 June 2018 in prison custody in Wales, out of 2,836 prisoners who were asked and an answer was recorded, 141 (5%) stated they had been a member of the armed forced. In prison custody in England, out of 48,147 prisoners who were asked and an answer was recorded, 1,891 (4%) stated they had been a member of the armed forces. Details of custodial statistics of the report and tables can be found at:</p><p>a) <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/750708/ex-service-personnel-prison-population-2018.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/750708/ex-service-personnel-prison-population-2018.pdf</a></p><p>b) <a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/750710/ex-service-personnel-2018.ods" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/750710/ex-service-personnel-2018.ods</a></p><p> </p><p>As of 30 June 2018, the Department estimates that 2,453 individuals under probation supervision declared they had been members of the armed forces of which, (i) 221 were in Wales and (ii) 2,232 were in England. Of this group, 800 individuals were on some form of post-sentence supervision following custody; (i) 96 were in Wales and (ii) 704 in England.</p><p> </p><p>Armed forces status is determined by self-declaration and the Department is committed to increasing declaration rates.
