Judge for Yourself

Every week in Queensland, our courts sentence people who have broken the law. But have you ever wondered how judges and magistrates decide what sentences to give? Hear the court case. Decide the sentence Judge for Yourself.


We are committed to help Queenslanders better understand sentencing. To do this we run a variety of regular presentations by video and teleconference, live web stream and face-to-face.
