Is Sentencing in Victoria Lenient?

Date of Publication

The Council has produced a two-page fact sheet presenting key findings from the Victorian Jury Sentencing Study that challenge the perception of lenient sentencing in Victoria.

The fact sheet has been updated since its original release.

A second fact sheet considers judges’ and jurors’ views on the weight given to sentencing factors.
