This Supplementary Order Paper sets out amendments to the Sentencing (Aggravating Factors) Amendment Bill. That Bill amends section 9(1) of the Sentencing Act 2002, which lists aggravating factors to be taken into account by the court when sentencing or otherwise dealing with an offender. Clause 5 adds to that list a new factor; that the victim was a constable, or prison officer, acting in the course of his or her duty. The amendments add a second new factor; that the victim was an emergency health or fire services provider acting in the course of his or her duty at the scene of an emergency. This Supplementary Order Paper replaces Supplementary Order Paper No 8.
