What is Criminal Sentence Conditional Discharge?


This is when an offender is found guilty but there is no sentence. Instead, they are released and the offence for which they have been found guilty is registered on their criminal record. They may still have to pay compensation, prosecution costs and, if it is a driving offence, be disqualified from driving. No further action is taken unless they commit a further offence within a specified time. If they do reoffend within this time period, they may be resentenced for the original crime, as well as any subsequent offences.
