This section of our website contains helpful information about what the court takes into account when deciding what penalty should be imposed, the types of penalties that can be imposed and how completing the MERIT program will assist the sentence that is likely to be imposed.

The sentencing principles that are applied in the courts in NSW are numerous and very few lawyers are aware of all of the principles that apply.  We have included some of the more common sentencing principles that may be of assistance to you to see how a court arrives at the penalty they impose.
