The report sets out the findings from a trend analysis of sentencing outcomes
The Sentencing Council published a report, on 22 March, on the findings from a review of trend analysis on the impact of the imposition guideline in clarifying the principles on the imposition of community and custodial sentences. According to the report, a trend analysis between 2011 and 2019 found that the guideline did not seem to immediately have an impact on sentencing outcomes; however, correspondence issued in 2018 appeared to be successful in highlighting the value of the imposition guideline and clarifying the relevant principles.
