SENTENCING OUTCOMES AT KIRKLEES MAGISTRATES COURT
written by The Justice of the Peace on the 29th October 2018 at 14:18


Results from Kirklees and neighbouring magistrates courts make interesting reading. Some readers might discern a pattern in or between courts` decisions; some might find the sentencing insufficiently severe or unjustifiably less than they would have applied.  The current sentencing guidelines are available here.  Whatever the subjective opinion there is no doubt that political considerations are driving sentencing every bit as much as judicially conceived desirable outcomes.
