Charles Bronson: why it is time for him to be released

PUBLISHED August 18, 2013

On 31 August, supporters of the prisoner Charles Bronson will deliver a 10,000 signature petition to 10 Downing Street calling for his release. Bronson, now in his 40th year of imprisonment, more than 30 of which have been spent in solitary confinement, is one of the UK's longest-serving prisoners. He has spent more years inside than most convicted murderers or sex attackers ever will ? yet he has never killed or sexually molested anyone.
