Abstract

People talk about the 'revolving door' of the criminal justice system. Criminal justice practice can certainly feel like all you are really achieving is keeping someone out of prison for today. Before long, they'll be charged with other offences, and you'll try to keep them out that day. After a while, there will be so many charges that a sentence is unavoidable. And once a few penalties have been imposed, a magistrate may conclude that prison seems like the only option available.
