Abstract

The multiple offender will receive a shorter (perhaps much shorter) sentence if she or he is dealt with for several offenses on a single sentencing occasionthan if sentenced for those same offenses on two or more separate sentencingoccasions. This is the “discount for bulk offending,” a practice which is widelyadopted in different sentencing systems but which is hard to justify theoretically,either in retributive or deterrent terms. In this chapter we focus on custodialsentences, where the issues are at their most stark.
