Title: Response to the Home Office Consultation (2006) on 'Making Sentencing Clearer'
Authors: Easton, S
Piper, CD
Keywords: Sentencing;community
Issue Date: 2007
Abstract: This is the response of Dr Easton and Professor Piper to the Consulation Paper, 'Making Sentencing Clearer' published by the Home Office in 2006. The deadline for responses was 9 January 2007 and a summary of responses will be published on the Home Office web-site in April 2007. Easton and Piper argued in favour of encouraging the greater use of community sentences and fines but opposed several proposals on human rights grounds. They also argued that the current 'tough' sentencing messages may negate the positive aspects of the proposed changes.
