A record number of criminals have had their sentences increased after people complained that they were too lenient.
The Attorney General's Office said 141 terms were added to in England and Wales in 2016 under the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme, up by 39 from 2015.
These included 41 sex offences, 19 of grievous bodily harm with intent and 16 involving robbery.
Only one person needs to ask for a sentence to be reviewed, and anyone - not just the victim - can request it.
Thirty offenders - including an arsonist, someone carrying a firearm and two men guilty of child neglect - had community sentences replaced with immediate custody.
Fourteen sex offenders who originally escaped being sent to prison are now serving time.
One rapist and one attempted murderer had their determinate sentences replaced with a life sentences.
Introducing this scheme was one of the best ideas the Tories had. It's a pity it isn't used more often to solve the problem of out of touch judges giving hardened criminals the slaps on the wrist which we hear of so often.
