Event description

Description

More than 157,260 defendants were sentenced in Queensland courts during 2015–16.

But have you ever wondered how our judges and magistrates decide what sentence to give? It’s complex.

There’s a lot more to sentencing than the headline from your local media would have you believe. By attending a Judge for Yourself community session you will:

  • find out the type of cases each court hears

  • learn about sentencing guidance judges and magistrates have to abide by

  • hear about the roles of the prosecution, defence and judicial officer

  • see the facts of the offending through the eyes of the courts, offenders and victims

  • pass sentence on an offender.

Think sentencing is easy? Register now.
