Product description

This new title is an abridged version of Clayton Ruby’s highly respected publication, Sentencing, 10th Edition, and particularly Chapter 23, which examines the historical and modern considerations applied in determining ranges of sentence for particular offences. Sentencing ranges reflect the principle of parity, which requires that similar offenders who commit similar offences in similar circumstances should receive similar sentences.

  • Find the offence number and penalty specified under the Criminal Code or the CDSA
  • Be alerted to the most important considerations in determining the appropriate range of sentence for the offence, including statutorily mandated considerations
  • Find a list of cases listed with the sentence imposed noted for each case
