Scottish Sentencing Council officially launched

The new Scottish Sentencing Council was officially launched earlier this week at an event in Parliament Hall, Edinburgh.

“The Council marks the start of a new era for sentencing in Scotland where expertise from across the criminal justice system and beyond is brought together to shape sentencing principles, and where there is a deeper understanding of the sentencing process and all the necessary complexity that it entails,” said Lord Carloway, the Lord Justice Clerk and Chair of the Council.

The Council will promote consistency and transparency in sentencing practice, assist in developing sentencing policy and encourage better understanding of sentences across Scotland. It will also be responsible for producing sentencing guidelines for the judiciary.
