  • Sentencing and Criminal Justice

    Sentencing and Criminal Justice
    Andrew Ashworth expertly examines the key issues in English sentencing policy and practice including the mechanisms for producing sentencing guidelines. He considers the most high-profile stages in the criminal justice process such as the Court of Appeal's approach to the custody threshold, the framework for the sentencing of young offenders and the abiding problems of previous convictions in sentencing. Taking into account the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008 and the Coroners and Justice Act 2009, the book's inter-disciplinary approach places the legislation and guidelines on sentencing in the context of criminological research, statistical trends and theories of punishment. By examining the law in relation to elements of the wider criminal justice system, including the prison and probation services, students gain a rounded perspective on the relevant principles and problems of sentencing and criminal justice.

    Proportionate Sentencing

    Proportionate Sentencing
    Exploring the Principles
    This book is about the principle of proportionality--the principle that a sentence should be proportionate to the seriousness of the offense committed. Although the principle has often been discussed, this book breaks new ground by examining more fully the detailed arguments for the theory and for applying it to a range of situations including young offenders, dangerous offenders and socially deprived offenders. The authors are well known for their previous writings on proportionality theory, and this book broadens the theory to deal with important contemporary issues in crime and punishment.

    Fundamentals of Sentencing Theory

    Fundamentals of Sentencing Theory
    Essays in Honour of Andrew Von Hirsch
    The Oxford Monographs on Criminal Law and Justice series covers all aspects of criminal law and procedure including criminal evidence. The scope of the series is wide, encompassing both practical and theoretical works. This volume is a thematic collection of essays on sentencing theory by leading writers. The essays consider several issues affecting the discipline including the underlying justifications for the imposition of punishment by the State, areas of sentencing policy that have given rise to particular difficulty, such as the sentencing of drug offenders, the rationale for discounting sentences for multiple offenders, the existence of special sentencing for young offenders, and cases where the injury done to the victim is of a different magnitude from what might have been expected, and includes various questions about the unequal impact on offenders of different sentencing measures. This volume is dedicated to Professor Andrew von Hirsch, whose continuing work on sentencing theory provided the stimulus for the collection.
