(242758)

Between May 2005 and December 2007 (the latest date for which data are available) 34 non-custodial sentences (including any fines, community sentences, discharges and otherwise dealt with) were imposed by the Crown court in Peterborough for burglary. Data on the numbers of previous convictions are not available at court or regional level.

These figures have been drawn from administrative data systems. Although care is taken when processing and analysing the returns, the detail collected is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system.
