Week in Justice 29 July 2018

The major criminal justice news this week was the MoJ's long awaited announcement on the future of the probation service. The Justice Secretary acknowledged that Transforming Rehabilitation had failed and the MoJ will be radically revising the structure of probation. CRCs will remain in England (not Wales) but their contracts will be ended two years early and from 2020 there will be just 10 CRCs mapped against NPS regions.

There's plenty of other news too including a prisoner's judicial review of parole post-Worboys as well as an interesting new HMPPS study on what prisoners think of being recalled.
