Out of the Blue: The Emergence of Indigenous Sentencing Jurisprudence in Victoria

International Journal of Punishment and Sentencing, The
Volume 2 Issue 2 (2006)

Abstract: Indigenous offenders have been conspicuous by their absence in the development of sentencing jurisprudence of Victoria. The result has been that this jurisprudence has not been developed as well as in other jurisdictions in Australia. The Supreme Court of Victoria, with its focus on broader social, economic and historical forces promise to extend the scope of existing authorities on Aboriginality and sentencing.
