Summary "Ashworth: Sentencing and Criminal Justice provides coverage of one of the most high-profile stages in the criminal justice process. It examines the key issues in sentencing policy and practice, providing an up-to-date account of the legislation on sentencing together with the ever-increasing amount of Court of Appeal case law. As a title in Butterworths' Law in Context series, the narrative is given depth and perspective by an examination of the law in relation to elements of the wider criminal justice system, including the prison and probation services. The book also discusses the influence of statements from politicians, the mass media and public opinion."--BOOK JACKET
