Abstract

How does English law treat victims' opinions as to the appropriate sentence that their offenders should receive? The issue is of particular importance since the introduction in October 2001 of the Victim Personal Statement Scheme, which aims to provide victims with a formal opportunity to have input into criminal justice decision-making. The article will consider the current position of victims' opinions in sentencing and highlight controversies within the existing law.
