Section 51: Community sentences: exclusion requirements

117.Section 51 is similar to Section 50, except that it allows a court to include an exclusion requirement in a community rehabilitation order or a community punishment and rehabilitation order. It differs from Section 50 in that:

  • under sub-paragraphs (1) and (2), an exclusion requirement may last for no more than two years and may operate continuously, or for periods specified in the order, and may specify different places from which the offender is to be excluded for different periods;

  • there is no requirement for the court to obtain and consider information about the place proposed to be specified in the requirement, as the offender’s presence will not be enforced in any place in a way that might affect other persons; and,

  • it is made clear that offenders may be excluded from an area as well as a particular place.
