This second volume provides a comprehensive but accessible account of the generic provisions governing sentencing, both as a question of principle and as a procedural challenge. Particular attention is paid to recent Court of Appeal interpretations and guidance. It goes on to detail the legislation and case law relating to each specific kind of sentence, order and ancillary measure, from automatic life imprisonment for a second serious offence to banning orders for football offenders. Intermediate measures such as deferment of sentence and committal for sentence are fully explored, as are the consequences of breach of conditional discharge or suspended sentence.;Written with probation and youth justice workers primarily in mind but likely to be valuable to other criminal justice practitioners seeking a convenient reference book, as well as to students, this book provides thorough coverage of the consolidating provisions of the Powers of the Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000, as well as the amendments and innovations introduced by the Criminal Justice and Court Services act 2000.
