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>

unstar this property answer text <p>HM Prison and Probation workforce statistics (which contains staffing figures in public sector prisons but not in privately managed prisons) are published quarterly. The latest publication can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/hm-prison-and-probation-service-workforce-quarterly-september-2018</p><p> </p><p>I have attached tables showing the number of funded posts at each privately managed prison and the number of Prison Officers present in Public Sector Prisons. It should be noted that as with all HR databases, extracts are taken at a fixed point in time to ensure consistency of reporting. However, the database itself is dynamic and where updates to the database are made late, subsequent to the taking of the extract, these updates will not be reflected in figures produced by the extract. For this reason, HR data are unlikely to be precisely accurate.</p><p> </p><p>Prison officer numbers are at their highest in five years, which is vital to ensuring prisons are safe, secure and decent. We now have over 4,300 additional staff in post compared to October 2016. The recruitment drive will continue until we reach required levels across the prison estate, ensuring prisons can fulfil their purpose - protecting the public, reducing reoffending and crucially, rehabilitating offenders.</p>
