Mandatory Sentencing

April 2000 - Mandatory SentencingThis month we look at Mandatory Sentencing and whether it is best for Australia, including the new legislation introduced in the Northern Territory. Some articles also look at the issue of mandatory sentencing on an international scale. Most of these views oppose mandatory sentencing. On Line Opinion provides space for all sides, and we are still actively trying to find more contributions in support.
