SST Sentencing Tracker

The Database Sentencing Tracker displays the following information:

Sentence Commencement and Sentence Length

  • Head Sentence | Means the full sentence of imprisonment the court has imposed, an offender may serve some of it or all of the sentence.
  • Cumulative term | Means an offender is sentenced for two or more crimes being served before or after the other.
  • Concurrent term | Means an offender is sentenced for two or more crimes being served at the same time as the other – effectively the sentences are served in parallel.
  • Non parole period | Means an offender is required to serve a minimum period of imprisonment imposed by the court before he/she is eligible to be considered for conditional early release to serve the remainder of his/her head sentence in the community.
  • Pre-cd Sentence | Means a sentence of more than 12 months commencing before July 2002 (imposed under the Criminal Justice Act 1985).
  • Post-cd Sentence | Means a sentence of more than two years commencing after July 2002 (imposed under the Sentencing Act 2002).

Custodial and Non-Custodial Sentences

  • What is a Custodial Sentence? | When an offender is to serve out his/her sentence in prison, an educational institution, reformatory or other correctional facility. If a convicted offender is diagnosed with a mental illness they may under the Criminal Procedure (Mentally Impaired Persons) Act 2003 be detained as a special patient under the Mental Health (Compulsory Assessment and Treatment) Act 1992 to serve out his/her sentence there.
  • What is a Non-Custodial Sentence? | When an offender is to serve out his/her sentence in the community. This includes community work, community detention, home detention, fines, counselling and taking courses and compulsory treatment, restriction orders, intensive supervision, or even suspended sentences. If an offender is found to be in breach of a non-custodial sentence this may result in the sentence being rescinded by the court to be replaced with a custodial sentence.

Preventive Detention and Life Imprisonment

  • What is Life Imprisonment? | A life sentence in New Zealand means a head sentence of life with a non-parole period of no less than ten years. Under new laws passed in May 2010 are no longer required to set a non-parole period when a life sentence is to be imposed. Judges now have the discretion to impose a life sentence without parole for the worst cases of murder and under the new “three strikes” legislation for serious violent offenders and sex offenders a sentencing just must impose a life sentence without parole if murder is a second strike offence unless it would be manifestly unjust. The mandatory sentence in New Zealand for any murder is life imprisonment unless it is a mercy killing see R v Law (2002) 19 CRNZ 500 (HC), or where there is evidence of prolonged and severe abuse of the defendant or their children the court will be able to consider a lesser sentence e.g. a 5 year or 10 year finite sentence.
  • What is Preventive Detention? | A sentence of preventive detention in New Zealand is effectively a head sentence of life imprisonment with a non-parole period of no less than five years. The sentence of preventive detention differs from life imprisonment in that its main purpose is protection of the community from further offending as opposed to being punitive. It is a sentence only available to serious violent offenders and sex offenders.

Aggravating and Mitigating Factors in Sentencing

Aggravating Factors | Aggravating factors include:

  •  Actual or threatened violence, or the actual or threatened use of a weapon, or unlawful entry into, or presence in, a dwelling place.
  • If the offence was committed while the offender was on bail or still subject to a sentence.
  • The absence/lack of remorse shown by the offender; the extent of any loss, damage, or harm resulting from the offence.
  • If there was particular cruelty in the commission of the offence.
  • If the offender was abusing a position of trust or authority in relation to the victim.
  • If the victim was particularly vulnerable because of their age, health or other factors known to the offender.
  • If the offender committed the offence partly, or wholly, because of hostility towards a group of persons who have an enduring common characteristic such as race, colour, nationality, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability, if the offender committed the offence partly, or wholly, because of hostility towards a group of persons who have an enduring common characteristic such as race, colour, nationality, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability, and the hostility is because of the common characteristic, and the offender believes that the victim has that characteristic.
  • Premeditation on the part of the offender and the level of premeditation involved, and the number, seriousness, date, relevance, and nature of any previous convictions of the offender, and any convictions for which the offender is being dealt with at the same time.

Mitigating Factors | The mitigating factors that may be taken into account include:

  • The age of the offender.
  • If and when the offender pleads guilty.
  • The conduct of the victim.
  • Whether the offender had limited involvement in the offence.
  • Whether the offender has diminished intellectual capacity.
  • Any evidence of the offender’s previous good character.
  • Any remorse shown by the offender, or any offer, agreement, response or measure to make amends.
  • Note: Being affected by the voluntary consumption or use of alcohol or other drugs is not to be considered a mitigating factor.

NZ’s longest finite sentences after 1985 for youth offenders (7 years or more)

The offenders listed here were young persons convicted of serious violent offences or sexual offences who were all under 18 at time the offence(s) were committed. They are listed in order by the offender with the longest head sentence. Note that these are the young persons under 18 who have received the country’s very significant finite (fixed) sentences. We estimate that there may be another two youth offenders in New Zealand that we have not been able to list as yet, and that we may not be able to add them because they have name suppression if they were under 17. We have mostly listed the offences from 1996 onwards because that is the furthest back we have been able to research to most of the time, and that we have available on our databases.

NZ’s longest concurrent terms (40 years or more)

The offenders listed here are serving the longest concurrent terms in New Zealand. The sentences listed were the truth in the sentences, and what they would be serving in places such as the United States cumulatively, but under the system we presently have allows them to be served concurrently. In cases of a indeterminate sentence in New Zealand, under our current system the courts can unfortunately only legally impose concurrent terms.

  • William Logan JOHANSSON – 168 years 6 months
  • Joseph Sam SAMOA – 154 years
  • Ese Junior FALEALII – 106 years 3 months
  • Liam James REID – 89 years
  • Raymond Wahia RATIMA – 87 years
  • Antonie Ronnie DIXON – 66 years (died in custody)
  • James Junior LAWRIE – 64 years
  • William Dwane BELL – 55 years
  • Joseph Stephenson THOMPSON – 55 years
  • Graeme William BURTON – 52 years
  • Craig Neville ROSS – 47 years
  • Pago SAVAIINAEA – 44 years

NZ’s longest cumulative terms (more than 14 years)

The offenders listed here are serving the longest cumulative terms in New Zealand. The sentences listed were the effective sentences imposed by the court, but not necessarily the truth in the sentences as some of the sentences were concurrent with the cumulative sentences e.g. an offender was sentenced to 10 years for rape and 10 years for manslaughter to be served cumulatively and five years for kidnapping to be served concurrently meaning the truthful sentence is 25 years but the effective sentence is 20 years.
