CRIMINAL PENALTIES
S10A CONVICTION WITH NO OTHER PENALTY
Anchor 1
SECTION 10A : CONVICTION
WITH NO OTHER PENALTY

The Court has the option of simply recording a conviction for an offence and not impose additional conditions or fines.

Section 10A of the Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act 1999 provides:

(1) A court that convicts an offender may dispose of the proceedings without imposing any other penalty.

(2) Any such action is taken, for the purposes of the Crimes (Appeal and Review) Act 2001 and the Criminal Appeal Act 1912, to be a sentence passed by the court on the conviction of the offender.

If you receive an order under this section, it means that you have a criminal record for the offence, but there are no other conditions you need to comply with. Depending on the nature of your matter, you may have prospects in appealing the severity of the section 10A Order and seek an order under section 10 of the Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act 1999. If you wish to discuss your options, please contact KF Lawyers for a free initial consultation.
