Justice for Joseph

In November 2014 Joseph Brown-Lartey was killed tragically in Rochdale when a dangerous driver sped through a red light and smashed into his car, splitting it in two. The 18-year-old driver was driving unlicensed, uninsured and had bragged only 24 hours earlier to friends that he was doing 124mph from Leeds to Rochdale.

The driver was sentenced to six years in prison but will serve only three, in a young offenders’ institution. Joseph’s parents describe this a “further slap in the face” and the Attorney General was asked to review the sentence on the grounds of being unduly lenient, yet no action was taken as it fell within current guidelines.
