Anglo-American Approaches to Cumulative Sentencing and the Implications for UK Sentencing Policy
Abstract:The aim of this paper is to examine the impact of the Conservative government’s proposed introduction of a limited form of cumulative sentencing in the case of burglary, Class A drug offenders, and, violent and sexual offenders. The paper focuses on the rationale for the introduction of a limited form of cumulative sentencing in the UK and includes an assessment of the implications of the proposed changes for existing sentencing practice and its significance in terms of existing and future sentencing policy, drawing specifically upon the American experience.
