In Victoria some violent offences now carry mandatory minimum jail terms.
Where the court has discretion regarding the sentence they may impose, they take into account a number of factors including:
- your age,
- whether you have any prior convictions or findings of guilt,
- the circumstances of the offence,
- your role in the offence.
