Sentencing Profile series

This series investigates sentencing trends and patterns for specific groups of people in Queensland.

The research reports provide some context to the group of focus, a statistical overview of the individuals and offences sentenced, and the distribution of penalties imposed using data from Court Services Queensland.

The Sentencing Profile series addresses a gap in publicly available, in-depth and up-to-date analysis of different community groups and how they are being sentenced in the criminal justice system.

Connecting the dots

This report examines courts data for cases involving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples sentenced in Queensland between July 2005 and June 2019.
