Conditional Discharge

A Young Person may receive a Conditional Discharge in criminal proceedings. A Young Person receiving a Conditional Discharge receives no immediate punishment. A period of between 6 months and 3 years is set and, as long as the young person does not commit a further offence during this period, no punishment will be imposed. However, if the young person commits another offence during this period, they can be brought back to court and re-sentenced.
