Why do prison sentences vary?
It appears to me that sentences given to men and women vary greatly and I would like to know why.
A woman benefit cheat obtained £23,000 and got a suspended sentence plus 200 hours of unpaid work.
A drunken woman attacked a man with her stiletto shoe. The victim was kicked and stamped on and suffered a fractured jaw. This was at 2.30am.
She received a suspended sentence and 100 hours of unpaid work.

Her lawyer said she was the main carer for her children. Who was looking after these children at 2.30am?
It was also said she was an excellent teaching assistant. What does she teach? Kicking and stamping?
Now, a man who slapped a goalkeeper has been jailed for 16 weeks and given a six-year football banning order.
Perhaps he should have got more, as he was described as a thug, but no matter what sex the offenders are, there should be no discrimination.

Well said A Morris, of Leicester, with regard to your letter about gas prices (Mailbox, October 20) and saying no to paying by direct debit.
I entirely agree that paying direct debit monthly for future fuel gives British Gas further money to spend as it wishes.
Also, when trying to reclaim money from it when accounts are well in credit, it is most reluctant to return your money.
If everyone pays quarterly on receipt of the gas bill – have a separate bank/savings account for bills – this would reduce the amount of money British Gas can use to its advantage.
It has had it its own way for too long and we, the public, have had no say in how it spends the money when many people could be using that extra cash to help with other household bills.
