How are offenders sentenced in England and Wales? This is the first volume to analyse the empirical and normative aspects of sentencing in the UK, exploring a range of important issues including the role of previous convictions, sentencing female offenders, offender remorse and the sentencing in cases of multiple crimes.

This unique collection reveals how courts in this jurisdiction sentence offenders, providing a portrait of practices in the magistrates and Crown courts from 1996 to the present day. Drawing from a new source of data from the Crown courts, original insights are derived about the way that offenders are punished. With expert contributions from scholars in criminal justice and law, this authoritative account presents the latest data trends relating to sentencing, as well as conclusions for policy and practice.
