Violet-Grace’s Law - Life sentences for Death by Dangerous Driving

The men who killed our daughter drove a stolen a car at 83 mph in a 30 mph zone. They killed our 4-year-old daughter Violet-Grace and severely injured her nan, who has life-changing injuries. They will serve less time in prison than Violet was alive. I don’t want other families to suffer like this.

Do not prosecute the military for its work in Northern Ireland. Our military should be excused all criminal investigations after a period of time.
