Sentencing in Tasmania
Edition 2 Rev ed
OverviewWhile Sentencing in Tasmania's focus is on Tasmania it is of relevance to all Australian jurisdictions because it contains an exposition of the common law principles in relation to sentencing including recent High Court decisions such as Olbrich (fact finding and sentencing); Ryan (sexual offenders and good character) Dinsdale (suspended sentences), Pearce (double punishment) and Postiglione (totality and parity). The discussion of specific crimes and offences includes a section of Social Security fraud together with data on sentencing ranges for the most common offences based on national data for sentences imposed in 2000. The book will be particularly useful in those jurisdictions that do not have a comprehensive and up-to-date treatise on the law of sentencing.
