"There is a feeling that the traditional methods (of sentencing)
are inadequate and that not enough has evolved in constructing
alternatives Judges like Surgeons in an emergency must use the
instruments to hand." (1) This statement made by Professor Radzinowicz
expresses a realisation of inadequacy which is becoming worldwide.
With the growth of psychology, psychiatry, criminology and the
neighbouring sciences, current research has demonstrated only too
clearly the "hit or miss" character of sentencing policies hitherto
adopted by the Courts. It is now recognised that whereas a particular
measure, such as probation, may completely reform one offender, another
guilty of a similar offence and with similar antecedents, may abuse
the trust placed in him by the Courts and pursue a life of crime with
added confidence.
