star this property answer text <p>The Sentencing Council has issued a definitive guideline on the sentencing of sexual offences. Racial aggravation increases an offender’s culpability under the guideline and therefore the starting point and sentence range for the court to consider.</p><p>Prosecutors should assist the Court as necessary during the sentencing process, including drawing the Court’s attention to any relevant sentencing guidelines and the aggravating and mitigating features of the case.</p><p>Ultimately, sentencing is a matter for the court. Racial aggravation makes an offence more serious and the court has a duty to take this into account when it sentences a defendant.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The payment of witness expenses and allowances to prosecution witnesses, where the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is the prosecuting authority, is governed by the Crown Prosecution Service (Witnesses’ etc. Allowances) Regulations 1988.</p><p>The rates payable in accordance with the Regulations are designed to provide compensation to witnesses attending court but not necessarily full reimbursement of all costs incurred, including loss of earnings, whether the witness is employed or self-employed. The aim is to strike a balance between providing a reasonable level of compensation to witnesses and ensuring that public money is spent appropriately.</p><p>It is important that the allowances are set at a level that does not discourage the public from coming forward to give evidence and rates are subject to regular review. Nevertheless, limits on the amounts payable are necessary if the Government is to maintain control over public spending in order to direct limited resources to areas of greatest need.</p><p>The witness allowance rates are due to be reviewed shortly.</p>
