When the minor was faced in front of a judge he was ordered to pay restitution and was sent to a facility that would give him therapy. To my surprise he was being sent to the same place I went to as a child, they now accept boys. When I heard this I wondered if this
One case in particular, that shows to great depth just how effective the criminal legal system can be is the Desmond Campbell Vs Janet Campbell case. After trial, on the 18th of May, 2010 Desmond Campbell was found guilty of pushing his wealthy wife Janet (age 49) to her death on the 24th of March, 2005 off a 50 meter cliff just south of Burning Palms in the Royal National Park in for financial gain. It was noticed that the offence committed by Des carried a maximum forfeiture of a life sentence in Prison, however, the Crown (and Judge) came to the conclusion that this specific case did not meet the description found in The Crimes (Sentencing Procedures) Act 1999.

There was, in fact a mitigating factor put forward by the defence lawyer for Desmond being that his older brother was killed in a motor vehicle accident shortly after he had migrated to australia traumatizing him during his years as an infant years.

The primary mission of the due process model is to protect innocent people from wrongful conviction. It is doubtful that many would argue against the fact that we must engage in significant efforts to protect those who may be falsely accused. However, many argue that while the due process model focuses upon the rights of the accused it ignores the rights of victims. due process model does not limit itself to the Fourth Amendment. The police must also consider the individual rights of the accused in respect to many of the individual rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.
Sentencing allows time for an offender to be punished and time for the community to help reduce crime. The corrections system would be nothing without sentencing. The objectives of punishment have changed the way sentences are determined in a positive way.
