Abstract Criminal Laws Northern Territory By Stephen Gray The criminal laws of the Northern Territory can claim to be the most interesting in Australia. The Territory more than any other jurisdiction has had to confront a world where a substantial percentage of offenders are Indigenous and, until recently, Aboriginal people who had a closer empathy with traditional tribal law than with the imposed Western criminal law. The result is criminal law which differs in a number of important respects from both the Criminal Codes and from the common law. Stephen Gray has now written a clear, concise account, covering procedure, all the major offences and evidentiary issues and with a notable chapter dealing with the very difficult issues of sentencing which have arisen. The book is sufficiently ‘black letter’ to be useful to Territory practitioners and sufficiently contexualised to attract a wider readership.
