This reference to the Sentencing Advisory Council was made by the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, the Hon Vanessa Goodwin MLC in July 2014.
In August 2015, the Council released a consultation paper, Phasing out of Suspended Sentences: Consultation Paper, which set out the Councilís preliminary views and draft recommendations following its deliberations on the approach to be taken to the phasing out of suspended sentences in Tasmania and the possible replacement sanctions. The Council also released a companion document, Phasing out of Suspended Sentences: Background Report to provide contextual information to inform the phasing out of suspended sentences and the development of alternative sentencing options.
The Council also commissioned a report to advise on the costs of phasing out suspended sentences in Tasmania. The report, Exploring the Costs of Alternatives to Suspended Sentences in Tasmania, was prepared for the Council by John Walker, CEO, John Walker Crime Trends Analysis and Lorana Bartels, University of Canberra.
This final report makes recommendations to the Attorney-General in relation to the sentencing options that may be introduced in Tasmania as part of the phasing out of suspended sentences.
