How should previous convictions enter into the sentencing equation? At what point should prior misconduct cease to count for the purposes of fresh sentencing? Should similar previous convictions count more than convictions unrelated to the current offense? Statutory sentencing regimes around the world incorporate provisions which mandate harsher treatment of repeat offenders...read more
