New sentencing videos

Jul 13, 2017

The Scottish Sentencing Council has added a new series of introductory videos to its website. 

The first, 'If you were the judge' follows the court case of Jack who has caused alarm in a nightclub and assaulted the steward. The video explains what the sheriff will consider when sentencing Jack and what sentences are available in Scotland. Viewers can visit the Council’s interactive web page to decide what sentence they would give Jack.

The Council is building its website as a comprehensive sentencing resource as part of its work to raise awareness and understanding of sentencing.
