This publication is concerned with the sentencing of offenders who have pleaded guilty or otherwise have been convicted of break, enter and steal offences. The original paper was presented at a seminar on burglary at the Queensland Institute of Technology in Brisbane on 26 June 1985. In this presentation, however, there is added an appendix containing summaries of New South Wales Court of Criminal Appeal decisions. It was those decisions which formed the background of the present work.
