According to recent BBC News report dated 27 June 2013: Fraud sentences could focus on harm, under new guidelines from the Sentencing Council sentences for financial crime could change to considering the impact on victims rather than the amount of money involved. BBC legal correspondent Clive Coleman said the proposals would require courts to “measure the harm” of a crime to victims. Michael Caplan from the Sentencing Council said its research showed fraud could have a “great impact” on victims even if the financial loss was relatively small.
Detective, Simon Halliday from Private Investigator Portsmouth agrees that the proposed changes would give courts clear sentencing guidelines and would, therefore, make sentencing more consistent.
