If you cannot find the sentence you are looking for it may be because:

  • it was imposed prior to 2002; or
  • initials have been used rather than the person’s surname (if suppression of a name is required by law). This occurs when the offender is under 18 years of age or there is a requirement to protect the identity of the victim.

For information about sentences prior to 2002 email the Supreme Court Library ( or telephone the Library on 6165 7446.

Statistics about certain sentencing outcomes imposed in the Tasmania Supreme Court in 30 crime categories (involving custodial terms of imprisonment) for the period January 2001 and December 2014 are available at the: Sentencing Advisory Council Tasmania.
