Magistrates Association and IAP Survey Report 2019

This short report is based on a survey undertaken jointly by the Magistrates Association (MA) and the Independent Advisory Panel on Deaths in Custody (IAP). The purpose of the survey was to collect the views of a small, selected group of magistrates on sentencing powers and practice in relation to offenders with mental health conditions, learning disabilities and other needs, with a particular focus on community sentences as an alternative to custody, where appropriate.
