The Ministry of Justice has published information on sentencing up to December 2019. The number of youth offenders sentenced for assault occasioning actual bodily harm, by sex, age and ethnicity can be found in the ‘Outcome by offence data tool’, available here:

In the pivot table:

  • Filter the Offence field to ‘8.01 Assault occasioning actual bodily harm’. Youth offenders are categorised as ’01: Children’ in the Age group field – select this filter.
  • To see figures for just those sentenced, remove ‘Values’ from the Rows box in the filed list and drag the ‘Sentenced’ field into the Values box.
  • Drag the field of interest i.e. ‘Age range’, ‘Sex’ and ‘Ethnicity’ into the Rows box in the filed list to see the number of youth offenders sentenced by these characteristics.
