The Attorney General has asked us to review sentencing for murder and manslaughter, including the penalties imposed for domestic and family violence homicides and the standard non-parole periods for murder.
We invited preliminary submissions to help us frame the issues that we should address in consultations.
Submissions closed 8 March 2019.
In the second half of 2019, we will produce a consultation paper dealing with the issues identified by the terms of reference and any preliminary submissions we receive.
