Olivia-Violet: 4,000 sign petition demanding jail sentence review on Shrewsbury drink driver who killed 11-year-old
More than 4,000 people have signed a petition asking the Attorney General to review the sentence of a Shrewsbury drink driver who killed 11-year-old Olivia-Violet Reeves.
Within 24 hours the petition to review Roger Goodall's sentence has gained 3,800 signatures from people all over the country.
It comes after Olivia-Violet’s family applied to the Solicitor General last Friday for permission to appeal the sentence, which they said was too lenient, but just a few days later they learned that they had been unsuccessful.
In September, the pensioner of The Mount, Shrewsbury, was jailed for four-and-a-half years for causing the death of Olivia-Violet Reeves, from Worthen.
The youngster was killed when Goodall’s out-of-control car hit her as she walked to catch the bus home from school in Shrewsbury.
