Abstract The politicisation of sentencing law reform reached new heights in the Northern Territory CNT), in November 1996, when the NT Parliament passed legislation providing for mandatory imprisonment for first-time property offenders and creating a novel sentencing option called a 'punitive work order'. The legislation is the Sentencing Amendment Act (No. 2) 1996 CNT) and Juvenile Justice Amendment Act (No. 2) 1996 CNT) (together referred to as the Amendments). This article details the content of the Amendments, outlines the policy arguments concerning mandatory sentencing and punitive work orders and considers legal arguments over the validity of legislation imposing mandatory imprisonment. Punishment is popular
