You crash your car and someone’s killed. Was it an accident or did you commit a crime? Will you go to jail? How long will you get?
Join moderator Madonna King and a panel of experts for a lively yet informative discussion about how our justice system deals with people who break the law.
The 2007 Law Week hypothetical will give you the chance to be the judge. After hearing all the facts of the case from leading prosecution and defence barristers, what sentence would you deliver?
Madonna — 612 ABC Brisbane Mornings presenter, award-winning journalist, commentator and author — will guide the panel and the audience through a scenario, highlighting the myriad factors considered when sentencing an offender charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle causing death.
You’ll get the chance to ask questions, make comments and learn more about our courts and justice system.
