More than 22,000 people have signed an online petition at this time calling for the law to tekan him even more.
The petition was started just 2 days ago.
Robinson, a 39-year-old American “expat” was sentenced to 4 years jail on 9 charges.
These include sexually assaulting two 15-year-olds and filming the assaults.
He also made a 6-year-old girl, supposedly the daughter of a close family friend, watch an obscene video with him.
And in addition to all that, he was also convicted on 5 counts of making and possessing obscene films.
Police seized 5,902 obscene films, including 321 films of child porn upon searching Robinson’s home.
That stash is believed to be the largest ever stash of child porn seized from an individual in Singapore.
Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam has said that said the AGC makes decisions about which charges to proceed based on precedents, and the sentence would depend on previous cases.
He said that that it is his understanding that the AGC is looking into the case, and it was not an appropriate time to comment on it as the time for an appeal to be filed is not over yet.
This is the petition posted by a Sarah Woon on Change.org:
Is this the message our Singapore Government People’s Action Party is intending to send worldwide: “Spray paint our city or slander our government officials and you get it worse off than if you rape and sexually abuse our children”?
Pedophiles will come from far and wide to take advantage of such an incredibly erroneous measure of justice!!
As a parent and an early childhood educator advocating for the voiceless in our country (and children everywhere, with the fact that upon release this pedophile could be anywhere around the world, abusing his mixed martial arts trainer’s credentials) I find this unacceptable and absolutely intolerable. Unfortunately, the 6 year old in this traumatic case is a daughter of a close friend and it absolutely breaks my heart and those of all our friends and family.
TO EVERYONE WHO READS THIS AND WISHES TO EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO PROTECT OUR CHILDREN AS A PARENT, A GRANDPARENT, AN UNCLE OR AUNT, AN EDUCATOR … PLEASE JOIN THIS PETITION TO THE PRIME MINISTER, ATTORNEY GENERAL CHAMBERS AND THE MINISTER OF LAW TO SEEK A REDRESS OF THE SENTENCE FOR THIS SEXUAL PREDATOR JOSHUA ROBINSON.

This petition will be delivered to:
ATTORNEY GENERAL CHAMBERS
