Thomas’ Sentencing Referencer provides clear and concise guidance on the operation of the Sentencing Code with concise summaries of the important case law.

“Simple, clear and authoritative—this book is absolutely invaluable.”
Her Honour Judge Tayton KC

“Thomas’ Sentencing Referencer is the indispensable companion of the criminal practitioner”
The Secret Barrister, @BarristerSecret

The 2024 edition has been updated to reflect the changes brought into force in the past 12 months:

  • changes to magistrates’ courts sentencing powers
  • amendments to the community order and suspended sentence order legislation
  • the latest developments from the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) across a range of topics

Thomas’ Sentencing Referencer provides user-friendly tables and flowcharts, including tables on guilty plea reductions by percentage and key details of minimum sentences. For many, it is quite simply the usual starting point from which they can confidently find a path through the maze of legislation.
