SCYJ submission to Sentencing Council consultation: Bladed articles and offensive weapons guideline

SCYJ has made a submission to the Sentencing Council consultation on the bladed articles and offensive weapons guideline.

We have a number of concerns about the guideline, including; that it sets the custody threshold too low, and does not explain what the threshold means for children. We thus recommend that the Guideline, as it relates to children, is significantly revised.
