Simon Spence QC speaks to Sky News & BBC News about Harper’s Law

25. Nov 2021

Simon Spence QC was interviewed by Sky News and BBC News on 24 November, 2021 about Harper's Law.

Three teenagers were jailed for the manslaughter of 28-year-old PC Andrew Harper in August 2019.

His widow campaigned for 'Harper's Law' - to give mandatory life sentences to the killers of emergency service workers which has now been backed by government.

Simon Spence QC commented on what laws were already in place to safeguard emergency workers and police and in addition explored the difficulties that present themselves when mandatory sentences are imposed for offences less then murder.
