Section 40 Reviews

Following an offender being sentenced by a magistrate, the offender or the prosecutor can seek a review of the sentence by the President.

The process proceeds to an early listing before the President and avoids the filing of an appeal to the Supreme Court of Western Australia.

Selected anonymised transcripts in relation to Section 40 Reviews before the President are available to download.

Details of court orders and the names of people will be removed.
