star this property answer text <p>Sentencing is a matter for the independent judiciary, which takes the full facts of each case into account. In 2018, the mean average proportion of the sentence served in prison by males released from determinate sentences (excluding extended determinate sentences) was 64%, the median proportion was 56%. For females the mean average was 49% and the median was 45%. The overwhelming majority of the releases covered by this data will be from standard determinate sentences but the way the data is recorded does not allow us readily to exclude releases from other types of determinate sentence, such as Detention and Training Orders and sentences for offenders of particular concern imposed under s.236A of the Criminal Justice Act 2003.</p> more like this

This Bill will contain a range of measures targeted at serious violent and sexual offenders, but will also contain proposals for community penalties that offer an appropriate level of punishment, while tackling the underlying drivers of re-offending. Before the Sentencing Bill is introduced the Government intends to publish a White Paper setting out proposals for reform.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Protecting the public will always be our priority. One of the first acts by this Prime Minister was to order an urgent review of sentencing. The focus of the review has been on the sentencing for the most serious violent and sexual offenders and the rules governing when and how those offenders are released. The review has also looked at changes to sentencing for the most prolific offenders which could help break the cycle of reoffending.</p><p>Based on the findings of the review, we will be bringing forward proposals shortly for a comprehensive package of legislative reform. This will include amending the automatic release point for the most serious sexual and violent offenders (where the offence carries a maximum life sentence) from the half-way point to two thirds of the sentence.</p><p>As part of this package of reform, we also plan to bring forward proposals for community penalties that offer an appropriate level of punishment, while tackling the underlying drivers of offending. We know that prolific offenders generally have multiple and complex needs which are linked to their offending behaviour, in particular drugs, alcohol and mental health needs. If we are to break the cycle of reoffending, solutions will often lie in community sentences, including those which address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs, or provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p>
