Review of sentencing for firearms, knives and weapons offences: preliminary submission

March 2023

The ALS welcomes the opportunity to make a preliminary submission to the NSW Sentencing Council’s review of sentencing for firearms, knives and other weapons offences.

In preparing this preliminary submission we sought feedback from ALS solicitors who appear in the local and children’s court criminal law jurisdictions. This preliminary submission will focus on areas highlighted in feedback—namely, the offence of custody of a knife.
