The father of Mandurah man Tauri Litchfield has hit out at the sentences handed to the four boys responsible for his son's death last year.
Three of the boys received 4½ years detention this week for the 28-year-old's mans- laughter, while the group's ringleader was sentenced to 5½ years.
Clive Litchfield said last night that the sentences were not long enough.
"He was attacked and died as a result, he's lost 60 years of his life," Mr Litchfield said. He would have liked to have seen the boys receive 15-year terms.
"I think the community wants a stronger response," he said. He wanted the penalties raised for juveniles found guilty of manslaughter in the future.
