Crime QRH (Quick Reference Handbook) is an easy to use guide to criminal offences in England and Wales, for criminal lawyers and court advocates. It has recently been updated to reflect the new Sentencing Code.

It's a searchable database of offences, providing quick access to key details:
- maximum sentence
- mode of trial (including grave crimes)
- sentencing guidelines
- statutory provision
- statutory alternative offences
- page references to Archbold and Blackstones
- mandatory minimum sentences
- dangerousness provisions
- obligatory/discretionary driving disqualifications and endorsements
- availability of SHPOs, SCPOs, Unduly Lenient Sentence referrals, SOA Notification Requirements, and POCA

Quickly identify the statutory provision, maximum sentence, mode of trial, and Archbold/Blackstone's page reference.

All of the common indictable-only, triable-either-way, and summary-only offences are covered in the App.

Where applicable, access the live Magistrates' Court and Crown Court Sentencing Guidelines for an offence with a single tap.

Any special provisions applicable to the offence are flagged up - for example, easily see if there is a mandatory-minimum sentence, if the offence requires a consideration of 'dangerousness', or if the offence attracts Notification Requirements.

Developed by Sam Willis, a barrister at 5 King's Bench Walk.

A really good app

It is a perfect little companion. I have read some of the other reviews and agree it’s all in the detail but this is good. You may have to move back or forth a little with the legislation elements but it’s incredibly useful, particularly at the nick or court, it is a quick reference guide and covers a lot of offences. Good job

Excellent little tool

Think this will be especially useful for pupils and new tenants - excellent that it links through to the Sentencing Council guidelines and further provides references to Archbold/Blackstones.

Good app but

Detail is everything with this app. If it’s inaccurate it’s pointless so checking before release is crucial. The Burglary sections of Theft Act 1968 are wrong.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your message. Burglary in the app is currently split into domestic and non-domestic as there are separate sentencing guidelines, so the section reference is to the maximum sentence in 9(3). I agree that this could be clearer so will amend the wording and issue an update today.
