Petitioning for an Appeal.

Nationals Member for Mildura Peter Crisp will be launching a petition today - protesting the sentence handed to 37-year-old Brandon Osborn.


Osborn was charged for the murder of Mildura Rural City Council worker Karen Belej - with the Crown accepting a guilty plea for manslaughter.


Mr Crisp believes the sentence was too lenient and doesn't give proper justice for Karen and her supporters.


But the clock is ticking with the judicial process only allowing 28 days for an appeal to be lodged - meaning locals have until September 18th to sign the petition.


If the petition is successful and the process is completed, it will be referred to as "Karen's Law".


Mr Crisp says violence of any form is a social issue that needs to be addressed.
