    • 1. Yoof Sentencing Consolidate and apply that learning!
    • 2. Starter: Can you create a happy, cohesive triangle? All of you should be able to make the triangles happy Most of you should be able to identify which option links to the lovely LAPSO 2012 Some of you should be able to work out which key sentence is missing…
    • 3. Starter: Can you find the 10 key terms? All of you should be able to work together to find the 10 terms. Most of you should be able to complete the terms. Some of you will be able to point out what is missing. Term Completed…
    • 4. Describe the custodial, community and other sentences available to a youth offender [18] Hint: these are worth 18 marks, 6 developed and explained areas are required! Introduction: Main Conclusion Point or Subheading Explain (meaning… and…) Example (statutes… cases… etc. remember to explain.)
    • 5. What should an AO1 answer look like? Hint: these are worth 18 marks, 6 developed and explained areas are required! This is a real answer from June 2012. You need to mark and grade it. You have an indicative scheme, in the brainstorm we completed last time, and the descriptions on your sheet. The type of sentence that a young offender may receive are slightly different from those of an adult. The custodial sentence for a young offender may include a number of months/years in a young offenders institute, if they have committed a crime that would usually if sentencing an adult, result in a longer sentence,, then the young offender will remain in the young offenders institute until they can be tried as an adult. The community sentence for a young offender, like that of an adult, will include a number of hours unpaid work, due to the young offenders age this is most likely to include activities such as litter picking, cleaning graffiti off of public walls or perhaps work in an old persons’ home. Other sentences for a young offender may be a ASBO which will give each individual who is given one specific conditions which they must abide by such as curfew, banning from certain areas etc. An ASBO would usually be given for repeated petty/summary offences such as public disturbances, vandalism or drinking on the streets. Like adult offenders young offenders can also be discharged by the court if they have committed a crime, but the courts feel that they should not be punished. Discharge can also be conditional so the offender may be told to go to rehabilitation or drug abuse meetings.
    • 6. Improving the response LEVEL 4 Good, well-developed knowledge with a clear understanding of the relevant concepts and principles. Where appropriate, candidates will be able to elaborate by good citation to relevant statutes and case-law. LEVEL 3 Adequate knowledge showing reasonable understanding of the relevant concepts and principles. Where appropriate, candidates will be able to elaborate with some citation of relevant statutes and case-law. LEVEL 2Limited knowledge showing general understanding of the relevant concepts and principles. There will be some elaboration of the principles, and where appropriate with limited reference to relevant statutes and caselaw. LEVEL 1 Very limited knowledge of the basic concepts and principles. There will be limited points of detail, but accurate citation of relevant statutes and caselaw will not be expected. 15-18 The aim is to be in Level Four, so how are we going to get there? The custodial sentence for a young offender may include a number of months/years in a young offenders institute, if they have committed a crime that would usually if sentencing an adult, result in a longer sentence,, then the young offender will remain in the young offenders institute until they can be tried as an adult. 11-14 6-10 1-5 A custodial sentence should be the last option for a young offender. Under the Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000, they should only be imprisoned if they are prolific offenders or the seriousness of the offence justifies it. Now you rewrite the sections on aiming for detail and accuracy!
    • 7. Modelling: Can you apply your understanding of youth sentencing to determine a defendant’s liability? Modelling an answer: Top tips: Aim for five points, well applied with a clear conclusion! James, aged 13, has broken into his school and stolen three laptops. He committed the offence with his friend, Steven, who has been in trouble before. James often fails to go to school, and hangs around with Steven in the town centre. He has already received a youth caution for criminal damage. Advise him which factors and which community sentence options a court is likely to consider.
    • 8. Main Task: Now you complete a problem question to demonstrate your understanding Stacey, aged 11, has been convicted of two counts of theft and one of criminal damage. She has three previous convictions for criminal damage, all of which occurred after drinking large amounts of alcohol. She currently lives with her parents, who are both alcoholics. Louise, age 15, has been convicted of assault after she hit her sister, causing her to break her nose. Louise has been depressed and is no longer attending school. She has previously been on medication to help with the depression, but has stopped taking it. She has no previous convictions Joe, aged 12, has been convicted of robbery after he stole £200 from his school mufti fund. He has an ASBO for anti-social behaviour towards others in his neighbourhood, and was convicted along with two other friends.
    • 9. Peer Assessment: Pass your answer to someone who cares! … but not the person next to you! Now you have another response… to another question! You are going to apply your understanding of both the law and the exam demands to mark the response. A bald point: Louisa has no previous convictions which would work in her favour A developed point: Stacey’s previous convictions would not work in her favour because she is a greater risk of reoffending, and so is likely to make her sentence worse. Now, using your understanding write a paragraph commenting on: An a bsolutely fabulous thing…. B etter if you… A well developed point: Joe has been charged with a serious offence which would increase the likelihood of a custodial sentence because of sentencing guidelines and it is from his school. However, the amount that he has stolen is quite small, and so would probably work to reduce his sentence. How c onfident should they be with their response?
    • 10. Plenary: Using the following words (or numbers!), create a sentence summarising this area of the law… detention order prolific 10 recidivism divert 16 referral Challenge: can you identify at least two other ages which are relevant to youth sentencing and explain why
