Criminal Justice 71
Presented by Robert McKenzte Crime, and violent crime in particular, is on the increase, and questions are being raised about the kind of sen tences being handed down.

With crowded prisons, are there alternatives to tougher sentences?
These problems are examined by criminoiogists, senior members of the legal profession and others closely concerned. Producer ROBERT FOX
