    Dangerous Dogs | New sentencing guidelines

    As of today (1st July 2016) the new sentencing guidelines take effect for offences involving dangerous dogs.

    The sentencing reflects changes in the law made by the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014. 

    The five offences are:

    1. Dog dangerously out of control in any place where death is caused;
    2. Dog dangerously out of control in any place where a person is injured;
    3. Dog dangerously out of control in any place where an assistance dog is injured or killed;
    4. Dog dangerously out of control in any place;
    5. Possession of a prohibited dog, breeding, selling, exchanging or advertising a prohibited dog.

    All of these offences carry custody as a maximum sentence.

    There are other ancillary orders which may be made by the court such as:

    • Compensation;
    • Disqualification from keeping a dog;
    • Destruction orders.

    Kangs Solicitors are experienced in representing defendants charged with Dangerous Dog offences.

    We can advise on all aspects of the case ranging from the evidence to negotiating a plea and advising on any potential sentence.
