Who is prosecuted for serious and organised crimes, and what happens to them?
2 October 2023
Serious and organised crime costs the UK around £37 billion every year. But who is charged with these crimes, and what happens to them in the criminal justice system?
This animation by ADR UK Research Fellow Tim McSweeney explores the findings from his research project on the nature, extent and outcomes of serious and organised crime cases in England and Wales. The project is one of the first studies to emerge from the Data First Magistrates' and Crown Court dataset, a ground-breaking data-linkage initiative led by the Ministry of Justice, funded by ADR UK, and hosted by the Office for National Statistics.
