Making sentencing terms easier to understand
The Queensland Sentencing Advisory Council has today released the first in a new video series focused on making sentencing terms easier to understand.
Featuring members of the Council’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Panel, the sentencing definition videos provide a simple spoken explanation of commonly used legal terms and a straightforward written definition.
With Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander audiences in mind, the sentencing definition descriptions are short and easy to watch and will be a handy resource for Queenslanders either going through or interested in the sentencing process.
The first video explains What is sentencing?, with others in the series to cover What is a Suspended Sentence?, What is Probation?, What is a breach?, What does Curfew mean?, What is an Intensive Correction Order?, What is Bail?, and What is a Community Service Order?.
