Sentencing Statements

Exchequer SignClick to enlarge image

In cases where there is public interest or where the sentence may be complicated or controversial, the judge may decide to make the sentencing statement more widely available. You can read the judge’s full statement here once sentence has been passed.

We also issue tweets to alert our followers as soon as statements are published. Follow Us.  

For more information about how judges decide sentences and what sentences are available to them, see the Scottish Sentencing Council website.
