We believe that prison sentences are often counterproductive for both a client’s rehabilitation and society in general. Sentences of imprisonment should only be imposed if all reasonable alternatives are exhausted; however, over the last 10 years inmate numbers have risen by up to 80% despite there being a reduction in the overall crime rate.
Attorney- General John Rau has recently proposed the implementation of new sentencing alternatives to imprisonment including home detention.
Williams Barristers and Solicitors welcomes this positive change for clients and the community.
