This extensively revised edition of "The Sentence of the Court" brings events up-to-date as at Spring 2003. It includes developments in relation to domestic burglary following R. v. McInerney, the implications for mode of trial and relevance of previous convictions at that stage, the use of imprisonment, prison overcrowding, the deployment of accredited programmes by the National Probation Service (such as 'enhanced community punishment' (ECP)) and by HM Prison Service. Also covered are other developments such as the new drug abstinence order, exclusion order (community sentence variety) and 'criminal anti-social behaviour order' (CRASBO) and the extension of electronic monitoring. The book also deals with racial and religious aggravation, confiscation orders under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 and similar changes - as well as anticipating key jurisdictional and sentencing changes which are likely to result from 2004 onwards.
