The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002: The impact on desistance and the legitimacy of punishment

This study aims to unveil the impact of the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 (POCA 20002) on the defendant and their wider families. The distinct lack of awareness and knowledge in this area means there is very little literature or debate taking place in relation to its application and impact on those subjected to a confiscation order. This project aims to address these shortfalls and make an original contribution to the field by highlighting the impact of the POCA legislation on both the offender and their wider families at a time when confiscation legislation is being strengthened (The Serious Crime Act 2015) and the recovery of proceeds is being incentivised and marketized, heightening the research relevance and necessity.
