The Sentencing Act 2020
The Sentencing Act 2020 comes into force on the 1st December. It is a huge and massively ambitious attempt to codify Sentencing in the Criminal Courts of England and Wales.
We ask the questions:
- What is its purpose?
- Do we need it?
- Does anything change?
- What do we all need to know?
Part 1 – Introduction to the Act – its history and its scope.
Part 2 – A brief outline of the provisions contained in the Act.
Part 3 – A practical guide on how to use the Act in Court and some of the changes that it might bring about.
