Section 10: First meeting: failure to agree contract

62.The intention is for the contract to be agreed at the first meeting of the youth offender panel. Where necessary the meeting may be reconvened in order to reach agreement, but section 10 provides that where there seems to be no prospect of reaching agreement, or where an agreement appears to have been reached but the young offender refuses to sign the contract, the youth offender panel must refer the young offender back to the court for re-sentencing (as to which see Schedule 1).
