Sentencing in Australia Sixth Edition is the most up-to-date explanation available of sentencing law and practice across Australia. The Sixth Edition of this national work strengthens its position as the preferred treatment of the subject.

Sentencing matters consume most court of appeal work and this title provides a thorough, coherent and much-needed treatment of this complex subject, which involves a wide range of interacting factors.

The Sixth Edition evaluates the many and diverse developments in sentencing matters over the past year, including High Court and other superior court decisions, for example:

  • Diminished importance of current sentencing practice, preferring that the most important consideration in imposing a penalty is to impose a just penalty according to the law, assessing a variety of considerations among which no single one is determinative, including current sentencing practices (DPP (Vic) v Dalgliesh (Pseudonym) (2017)); and
  • Sentencing on the basis most favourable to the offender, when a jury finds an accused guilty of an offence which can be committed in a wide variety of ways (Chiro v The Queen (2017))

In terms of legislative changes, the Sixth Edition provides essential consideration of the Sentencing Act 2017 (SA)

On the basis of its currency, national scope and authoritative content, Sentencing in Australia Sixth Edition is the logical choice in each Australian jurisdiction, for practitioners and law students alike.
