New Dangerous Dog Sentencing Guidelines

The new sentencing guidelines for owners of dangerous dogs come into force from today.

The advice to Judges and Magistrates aims to encourage harsher sentences for offenders.

As a result it is anticipated that there will be an increase in prison sentences and community orders.

If you have been prosecuted under this law and need legal representation  then please contact me on 01743 280232.

Alternatively, if you are a victim of a dog bite and need assistance contact my colleague Karen Clarke in our Personal Injury department on 01743 280224.
