Did The Crime, Not Quite Done The Time? Parole and the Post-Sentence Scheme

What happens when prisoners reach the end of the non-parole period of their sentence?

Hear from His Honour Peter Couzens, Chairperson of the Adult Parole Board and Michele Williams QC, Chair of the Post Sentence Authority, as they address these and other important issues relevant to the post-prison pathways of offenders. After outlining the roles of the Adult Parole Board and the Post Sentencing Authority, they will illustrate the new pathways that have been introduced in recent years by chronicling the journey of a fictitious violent offender as they progress through the criminal justice system.

The presentation will be chaired by Professor Marilyn McMahon, Deputy Dean of Deakin Law School.
