dc.description.abstractThe 2010 prosecution of five white men in Alice Springs following the death of an Aboriginal man resulted in their conviction on manslaughter and subsequent sentencing to custodial terms of up to six years each. This article reviews the circumstances of the death and its aftermath to question whether another recent account of the case as an instance of ‘white supremacist settler violence’ in Central Australia can be sustained. Far from being typical of Central Australian homicides, this case was exceptional in its inter-racial character, and far from being exceptional in its sentencing result, this article shows that the prosecution resulted in outcomes for the defendants that appear consistent with the principles in other manslaughter cases. It is argued that interpretation of these events demands an account sensitive to the changing political and social contexts of Central Australia, as well as a contextual account of sentencing practices and outcomes in the Northern Territory jurisdiction.en_US
