An overview of what can be learnt from recent criminal case law
This is a very practical session during which lecturer Colin Beaumont will provide commentary on key case law in order to bring viewers up to date with key areas of criminal law and practice.
Aimed at criminal practitioners having to advise on difficult issues at an early stage, the contents of the PET form for example, this session will cover the following:
The differences between a DTO and YOI sentence
How to deal with admissions in interview when sentencing
Section 35A and 35B of the RTOA 1988
When trials should not take place in absence
Section 240 and 240A of the Criminal Justice Act 2003
The circumstances in which an either-way offence may be reduced to a summary-only offence
The circumstances in which a Crown Court Judge may review and increase a sentence under Section 155 of the PCC (S) A 2000
Essential for anyone advising clients in the area of custody, this course will ensure that practitioners realise that they are able to assist magistrates’ and crown court judges when reaching decisions and that they know how to do so successfully.
