Reform and punishment: the future of sentencing

N. Hutton

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

Review of 'Reform and Punishment: the Future of Sentencing', edited by Sue Rex and Michael Torny. In this book a group of leading authorities in the field address the key issues surrounding the future of sentencing in Britain, in the light particularly of the highly influential Halliday Report. These proposals for reform amount to the single most ambitious and comprehensive set of proposals for reconstituting the sentencing system of a common-law country, and include proposals to replace existing sentencing statutes, the establishment of a sentencing commission and sentencing guidelines, and the creation of a sentence review function in the judiciary.
