Case in Focus

Our Case in Focus series summarises the legal and sentencing principles used in recent high profile or interesting appeal court decisions.

In a simple and user-friendly format, Case in Focus is designed to help the community to better understand what guides an appeal against a sentence.

Case in Focus summaries are incomplete summaries of the Court’s reasons and are not legal advice. The summaries include explanations of legal concepts that are not necessarily set out in the judgments. The summaries are not approved by, or affiliated with, Queensland Courts and are not to be regarded as a substitute for the Court of Appeal’s judgments.
