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> </p><p> </p><p>Release on temporary licence is the process where, towards the end of his or her sentence, an offender can be released from a prison establishment on a temporary basis. This release has to be for a specific purpose, which may include training, employment, or maintaining family ties, and comes with strict conditions that must be met. All offenders are subject to a risk assessment before being released. Temporary release contributes to public protection by enabling release plans to be tested, under strict conditions, before the offender is released. It also allows prisoners to participate in necessary activities outside of the prison establishment. This helps them to adjust to life on release, which contributes to reducing reoffending.</p><p>On 10 March, the Government announced a package of measures to improve the consistency, risk assessment and monitoring of releases on temporary licence. The improvements will apply to all prisoners but, in addition, a new scheme of Restricted ROTL will be introduced for those prisoners who have committed serious crimes in the past. This will feature more stringent risk assessment procedures carried out by probation professionals, and more robust monitoring arrangements when this sort of offender is on temporary licence in the community.</p><p>In 2012, the latest period for which figures are available, 611 prisoners serving a life sentence, and 1,043 prisoners serving an indeterminate sentence for public protection, were granted release on temporary licence. These figures have been drawn from administrative IT systems which, as with any large scale recording system, are subject to possible errors with data entry and processing.</p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p /> <p>The sentencing framework and sentencing guidelines apply equally to all offenders. Sentencing is entirely a matter for the courts, taking account of all the circumstances of each case. This will include all aggravating and mitigating factors, the criminal history of the offender and a guilty plea.</p><p> </p><p>Defendants are now more likely to be convicted for committing crime and sent to prison for longer than they were a decade ago. In addition criminals convicted since 2010 are more likely to receive an immediate custodial sentence, both overall and for a first time offence.</p><p> </p><p>Offenders sentenced at all courts, by gender, class type, offence type in West Yorkshire police force area from 2008 to 2012 (latest available) can be viewed in the table.
