Sentencing Council consultation on public order offences - Law Society response

9 August 2018

Law Society responds to Sentencing Council consultation on public order offences.

The Society commented on the aggravation of other offences in the context of a riot; the need to avoid ‘double counting’ where additional offences are charged; and welcomed clarification that being under the influence drink or drugs is an aggravating factor.
