star this property answer text <p>I have made no formal appraisal, but Crown prosecution Service (CPS) guidance to prosecutors sets out the circumstances in which witness summonses can best be used in such cases. This guidance is published on the CPS website at: <a href="http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/d_to_g/domestic_violence_aide-memoire/#a25" target="_blank">http://www.cps.gov.uk/legal/d_to_g/domestic_violence_aide-memoire/#a25</a></p><p>Witness summonses can be effective in ensuring complainants attend court when they would not otherwise do so. They can also support victims who are concerned about how a voluntary decision to attend court might be perceived by ‘removing' the pressure of making that decision for them. Where a victim attends as a result of a witness summons, there is often a guilty plea.</p><p>However, it is also possible that a witness will still not attend, or may come to court but refuse to give evidence.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Allegations of benefit fraud are investigated by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). Administrative penalties are financial penalties, which can be offered as an alternative to prosecution, where there has been no previous fraud penalty of any form. These are issued by the DWP and Local Authorities. Cautions are issued by the Police.</p><p>The records held by the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) identify the number of offences in which a prosecution commenced and, reached a first hearing in magistrates' courts, rather than the number of defendants prosecuted and convicted or their gender.</p><p>No central records of the prosecution outcomes of offences are held by the CPS. To obtain details of the number of people prosecuted for and convicted of offences of benefit fraud, which can be charged under various sections of the Social Security Administration Act 1992, Section 35 of the Tax Credits Act 2002 or the Fraud Act 2006, including their gender, would require a manual exercise of reviewing individual case files to be undertaken at a disproportionate cost.</p><p>Furthermore, cases of benefit fraud are also prosecuted by Local Authorities so any data the CPS can glean from a manual exercise would not provide a complete record.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The number of offenders sentenced to up to six months who had not received a previous community sentence by court type can be viewed in the table.</p><p> </p><p>There is persuasive evidence showing community sentences, in certain circumstances, are more effective than short custodial sentences in reducing reoffending. The MoJ study ‘The impact of short custodial sentences, community orders and suspended sentence orders on re-offending’ published in 2015 found that over a 1-year follow up period, a higher proportion of people re-offended having been sentenced to custody of under 12 months without supervision on release than other similar people given community orders.</p><p> </p><p>Unless we tackle the underlying causes of offending, we cannot protect the public from being victims of crime. Effective community orders can address offenders’ behaviour, answer their mental health and alcohol or drug misuse needs, and provide reparation for the benefit of the wider community.</p> more like this

This database holds information on offences provided by the statutes under which proceedings are brought, but not all the specific circumstances of each case. This centrally-held information does not allow us to separately identify which offences proceeded against were related to domestic violence. This information is not reported to Justice Statistics Analytical Services in MoJ owing to its size and complexity, and it could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="12"><p><strong>Table 1: Defendants<sup>(1)</sup> proceeded against at magistrates' courts, by remand status, offence group and sex, England &amp; Wales, 2012<sup>(2) </sup>(e)</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"> </td><td colspan="4"> </td><td colspan="2"> </td><td> </td><td colspan="2"> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"><p>Offence Group</p></td><td colspan="4"><p>Remand Status</p></td><td colspan="2"><p>Male</p></td><td> </td><td colspan="2"><p>Female</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"> </td><td colspan="4"> </td><td colspan="2"> </td><td> </td><td colspan="2"> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"><p>Violence Against the Person<sup>(3)</sup></p></td><td colspan="4"><p><strong>Custody<sup>(4)</sup></strong></p></td><td colspan="2"><p><strong>6,867</strong></p></td><td> </td><td colspan="2"><p><strong>401</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"> </td><td colspan="4"> </td><td colspan="2"> </td><td> </td><td colspan="2"> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"><p>Public Order Offences<sup>(3)</sup></p></td><td colspan="4"><p><strong>Custody<sup>(4)</sup></strong></p></td><td colspan="2"><p><strong>1,508</strong></p></td><td> </td><td colspan="2"><p><strong>112</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"> </td><td colspan="4"> </td><td colspan="2"> </td><td> </td><td colspan="2"> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"><p>Harassment Offences<sup>(5)</sup></p></td><td colspan="4"><p><strong>Custody<sup>(4)</sup></strong></p></td><td colspan="2"><p><strong>2,060</strong></p></td><td> </td><td colspan="2"><p><strong>78</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="3"> </td><td colspan="4"> </td><td colspan="2"> </td><td> </td><td colspan="2"> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="7"><p>(e) Magistrates' courts data for 2012 are estimated.</p></td><td colspan="2"> </td><td> </td><td colspan="2"> </td></tr><tr><td> </td><td colspan="3"> </td><td> </td><td> </td><td colspan="6"> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="12"><p> </p><p><strong>Table 2: Defendants<sup>(1)</sup> appearing at the Crown Court, by remand status, offence group and sex, England &amp; Wales, 2012<sup>(2)</sup></strong></p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"> </td><td colspan="6"> </td><td colspan="2"> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Offence Group</p></td><td colspan="6"><p>Remand Status</p></td><td colspan="2"><p>Male</p></td><td> </td><td><p>Female</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"> </td><td colspan="6"> </td><td colspan="2"> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Violence Against the Person<sup>(3)</sup></p></td><td colspan="6"><p><strong>Custody<sup>(4)</sup></strong></p></td><td colspan="2"><p><strong>6,975</strong></p></td><td> </td><td><p><strong>476</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"> </td><td colspan="6"> </td><td colspan="2"> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Public Order Offences<sup>(3)</sup></p></td><td colspan="6"><p><strong>Custody<sup>(4)</sup></strong></p></td><td colspan="2"><p><strong>1,628</strong></p></td><td> </td><td><p><strong>74</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"> </td><td colspan="6"> </td><td colspan="2"> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Harassment Offences<sup>(5)</sup></p></td><td colspan="6"><p><strong>Custody<sup>(4)</sup></strong></p></td><td colspan="2"><p><strong>534</strong></p></td><td> </td><td><p><strong>14</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"> </td><td colspan="6"> </td><td colspan="2"> </td><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td colspan="12"><p>(1) Defendants in Table 1 may also be counted in Table 2 if they were committed for trial or committed for sentence at the Crown Court.
