question related to punishment
« on: June 03, 2017, 02:27:45 AM »
Hello. I had a question regarding punishments.

Now, from my understanding, if a person is tried and convicted of causing hurt to someone, then the punishment would be for the offense as one offense. For instance, if person A punched B 20 times, each punch causing a painful bruise on B's body, but if convicted, A won't get punished 20 times for 20 separate punches, but only one punishment for all those punches.

However, what I am not clear about, is what happens in the following scenario:  A punches 20 different persons, in 20 different situations for totally different motives. If the 20 persons, all file cases against him, then, hypothetically speaking, if he were to be convicted in all those 20 separate cases, will he get sentenced for all those acts separately? Meaning, if for all single acts, he gets 1 year each, then he ends us getting a sentence of 20 years in total?

Now, I know some sentences are consecutive, while others concurrent, but my question is, legally, is it possible, that the sentence be consecutive, necessitated as a consequence of being tried in different courts?

Secondly, is it within the discretion of the court, to pass consecutive sentence in a scenario where all separate crimes are tried by the same court? If yes, then, does that not mean, hypothetically, that a person who hit a few people, ends up spending more time in prison than a convicted murderer who gets released after 10 or 14 years?

all complaints will be clubbed together as in one case.
the following person will be treated as habitual offender, thereby getting no leniency from court and the maximum sentence and fine for that particular offence.

than again judges have their discretionary powers.

a lawyer known to the judge will even see such offenders released.

these days law is rarely followed by the hon'ble court... OMG I said it :P
