Abstract

Over 90% of all criminal matters in England and Wales are dealt with in the magistrates' courts. This chapter focuses on how magistrates make sentencing decisions, from guidance through to process and outcome. It introduces the magistracy and summarises its role in the judicial system. It includes a review of previous empirical work and present novel research assessing how magistrates approach their sentencing task.
