New non-judicial appointments to the Council announced

Following the announcement of a new judicial member to the Council last week, two new non-judicial members have now been appointed to the Sentencing Council by the Lord Chancellor as a number of existing members reach the end of their three year tenure.

They are:

  • Javed Khan, Chief Executive of Victim Support; and
  • Michael Caplan, QC.

Lynne Owens, Chief Constable of Surrey Police, Julian Roberts, Professor of Criminology, and John Crawforth, OBE have been reappointed.
