hey great notes - just a couple of questions -

In sentencing - what is the presentation of character reference and the victim impact statement? is this basically <insert name> is a good bloke, ive known him for yada yada (like for a job) , and then the VIS being <insert name> caused this and this to happen to me.. i lost my job etc.?

sorry if thats kinda basic lol

and then, what is the administration of sentence?

Character yes will usually include such stuff as hard working, strong in the community, no prior convictions etc. or it could be negative as well, from the prosecution.

victim impact statement are how the crime has affected the victim emotionally/physically/financially.

adimistration of sentence includes such things as security classification (for a custodial sentence) and whether protective custody is required (again for custodial sentences)
