Dangerous Offenders – Sentencing Guidelines Council

Posted July 9th, 2008 in dangerous offenders, news, sentencing by sally

“On 14th July 2008, the dangerous offender provisions in the 2003 Act are amended as a result of the implementation of relevant provisions in the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008. The Guide for Sentencers and Practitioners issued by the Sentencing Guidelines Council in September 2007 as an addendum to its Guideline Judgments Compendium has also been amended. The Guide brings together the statutory provisions and relevant case law for the assistance of both the judiciary and practitioners: it is not a Council guideline. As well as incorporating the effect of the new provisions into the text, a new Annex F reproduces sections 225-229 of the 2003 in amended form, including the new schedule 15A. A brief summary of the effect of the new provisions is also included for ease of reference.”
