Sentencing Council launches new definitive guideline for dangerous dog offences
Yesterday, the Sentencing Council published a new guideline for judges and magistrates on the sentencing of dangerous dog offences.
The new guideline, which has been issued following a 12-week public consultation, will come into effect on 20 August 2012.
The Council has also published a response to the consultation which summarises some of the very useful feedback and comments we received.
