What are One Punch Laws in NSW?

The one punch laws were introduced due to numerous incidents where a single blow to a person’s head or neck resulted in death. The maximum term of imprisonment is 20 years.

In addition, an aggravated form of the offence where the person is intoxicated at the time of the offence was introduced. For example, a person guilty of Assault Causing Death when intoxicated, is liable to a maximum sentence of 25 years imprisonment.
