On 17/09/2012 the Domestic and Family Violence Act 2012 commenced in Queensland as part of a legislative framework to address domestic and family violence. Each year, under this regime, prosecutors conduct thousands of sentences and the Queensland government spends millions of dollars in policing and court processes. Despite the volume of sentences and the amount of investment there has not been a comprehensive study into domestic and family violence sentencing or the role of the prosecutor in these proceedings. This thesis will conduct a thematic analysis of all reported domestic and family violence sentencing case law in consideration of the role of the prosecutor with the aim of developing effective and measurable prosecution practices in domestic and family violence sentencing.
