Product description

Why should you buy Banks on Sentence 2021

Banks on Sentence is the definitive sentencing guide. It is used by judges, barristers and solicitors for sentencing hearings in the Magistrates' Court, Crown Court, Courts Martial and the Court of Appeal

Volume 1 sets out the sentencing powers available to the Courts. It contains all relevant material to set complex and overlapping legislation in context. It includes procedure to be applied in sentencing hearings, including applications for behaviour orders and appeal hearings.

Volume 2 contains all the relevant guidelines, cases and sentencing material to enable judges, magistrates and practitioners to determine the sentence for almost all commonly prosecuted offences.

Banks is the most comprehensive coverage of sentencing available. It offers substantial case authority material to assist where no sentencing guideline exists. Where guidelines do exist, Banks provides judicial guidance on the meaning and application of the terms used in a given guidance.

The 16th Edition includes:

  • Both volumes fully updated to reflect changes made by commencement of the Sentencing Code (Sentencing Act 2020) where conviction was on or after 1/12/20.
  • All currently applicable Sentencing Guidelines, including newly effective guidelines for firearms offences and updates to guidelines for Drugs offences.
  • Criminal Procedural Rules 2020.
  • The Taking Account of Convictions (EU Exit)(Amendment) Regulations 2020 and Brexit-related amendments.
  • Judicial guidance (Manning) concerning the impact of the covid-19 pandemic on the prison estate and discounted sentences.
  • R v Privett and Others on the assessment of harm in cases of arranging the commission of child sex offences, where the child in question was fictional.
  • R v PS and Others regarding the court?s assessment of culpability where an offender suffers from a mental health condition.
