In what has become the County Court most-popular Victorian Law Week session, the Chief Judge Kidd and Deputy Chief Judge M Sexton discuss sentencing by drawing on their unique perspectives and experiences.
This session is an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the sentencing process from those who know it best, including its challenges, balancing various factors, taking into account the individual circumstances of those involved in a matter, and what happens when a judge gets it wrong.
This pre-recorded session was first held as part of Victoria Law Week 2022.
