Sentencing Advisory Council Statistics Online (SACStat)

SACStat is an online database of statistics for sentences imposed in Victorian criminal courts.

SACStat includes data on nearly 200 different offences sentenced in the County and Supreme Courts of Victoria between 1 July 2011 and 30 June 2016 and nearly 500 different offences sentenced in the Magistrates' Court of Victoria between 1 July 2013 and 30 June 2016.

Our SACStat Frequently Asked Questions explain what SACStat is and how it works.

Sentencing Snapshots

Published since 2005, the Sentencing Snapshot series provides data on sentencing practices over a five-year period for 31 offences heard in the County and Supreme Courts of Victoria. Previously, Snapshots covered offences heard in the Magistrates' Court. The Council has since made its Magistrates’ Court sentencing data available on SACStat.

You can explore Sentencing Snapshots using Snapshots by date or Snapshots by offence, or you can browse the complete Sentencing Snapshot series.
