The Sentencing Academy’s Executive Director, Professor Julian Roberts, was joined by Professor Nicola Padfield, Professor Mike Hough and Mr Umar Azmeh in a panel discussion on the new Government’s proposals for sentencing reform. Areas of discussion included the Conservative’s manifesto commitment to ‘introduce tougher sentencing for the worst offenders and end automatic halfway release from prison for serious crimes’ and the Government’s renewed focus on sentencing in terrorism cases.
