Revised annually to keep up-to-date, this paperback provides essential information on all aspects of sentencing law. Its clear layout and practical approach mean that the practitioner preparing a plea in mitigation, or advising on appeal, can quickly locate the key points of legislation affecting the sentencing powers of the courts. Maximum sentences for the most common indictable offences are set out in an easy-to-follow table at the back of the book. The text is fully cross-referenced to the provisions of the Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000. New developments covered in this edition also include: minimum sentences for house burglars who commit offences for the third time; football banning orders; and detention and training orders.
