The Library is pleased to offer Rangefindr on all 8 computers in the library. “Rangefindr.ca is a tool to help lawyers and judges find criminal sentencing ranges in seconds instead of hours. Click a few tags that describe the kinds of cases you’re looking for — such as assault cases where the accused is a first offender —and Rangefindr.ca tells you what sentences were imposed in those cases. One more click and you can review the judgments themselves.”
