Quick Reference Handbook

    • $4.99


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.
