"Ms. Robitaille and Ms. Winocur have done the impossible and turned the forlorn topic of sentencing into a page turner. This book is academically sound and, perhaps more importantly, full of solid practical advice for the criminal law practitioner."

—Craig Bottomley

General Editors: Brian H. Greenspan and Justice Vincenzo Rondinelli

Sentencing: Principles and Practice serves as a concise resource for all sentencing issues in the Canadian criminal justice system. Building on general principles, this text tackles both common and unusual sentencing issues and questions, and pragmatically discusses plea negotiations, procedure and advocacy, dangerous offenders, types of sentences, Charter considerations, appellate issues, and ancillary orders, as well as post-sentencing issues.

Criminal defence counsel Danielle Robitaille and assistant Crown attorney Erin Winocur inject their perspective and experience as front-line advocates, providing readers with a constructive and balanced discussion of the topic. The experienced authors and contributors have written chapters dedicated to various areas of practice, creating a comprehensive reference that thoroughly explores an array of themes relating to sentencing.

This text is Volume 12 in Emond's Criminal Law Series.
