The Week in Justice 9 June 2019

______________

This week’s main story was the publication of the Independent Monitoring Boards’ annual report which, while hopeful of improvements, charted a decline in prison safety and living conditions while also raising concerns about prison healthcare.

A new report by Crest Advisory found that we are still sending thousands of women to prison for shoplifting every year.

In a week when Justice Secretary David Gauke announced that he was intending to bring proposals to curb prison sentences of six months or less by the end of the summer, the Magistrates Association started their push back campaign, arguing that there should only be restrictions on sentences of 8 weeks or less.

As always, click on the tile to see the full story.

The Week in Justice is kindly sponsored by specialist prison photographer Andy Aitchison.
