Stakeholders in the criminal justice system and members of the public are reminded that the public consultation on the Barbados Sentencing Guidelines Project concludes this Friday, May 6, and they must submit their comments by that date.

This project gives Judges and Magistrates sentencing guidelines for rape, death by dangerous driving, and dishonesty offences.  To view the guidelines, persons should visit the Barbados Law Courts’ website.  Comments should be sent to sentencing.guidelines@barbados.gov.bb.

Comments are encouraged from the Judiciary, Magistracy, Barbados Bar Association, Probation Department, the Barbados Prison Service, Barbados Police Service, The University of the West Indies and the general public. 

At the end of the public consultation, all comments will be vetted by the Sentencing Guidelines Committee, and adjustments made where necessary. The sentencing guidelines will benefit victims and witnesses of crime, prosecutors and defence attorneys.
