When Someone is Sentenced to Prison Should They Do the Whole Sentence?
Ask a Question
This time last year my wife did jury service and for obvious reasons 2020 has been a highly different year to 2019 . What I would love to know is when a person is given a custodial sentence they know that if they behave while in prison they will only serve half there sentence . Do you think if a prisoner knows that the judge says 6 years for example that they are not getting out till 6 years that the public will then think the punishment fits the crime or if a judge knows that the prisoner will only do half of the sentence then instead of the 6 years they are given 12 years and this ensures the person does the sentence.
