Exercise of powers under paragraph 13(2) or 14(2): further provisions

15(1)In sub-paragraphs (2) and (3), “specific area requirement”, in relation to a youth rehabilitation order, means a requirement contained in the order which, in the opinion of the court, cannot be complied with unless the offender continues to reside in the local justice area specified in the youth rehabilitation order.

(2)A court may not under paragraph 13(2) or 14(2) amend a youth rehabilitation order which contains specific area requirements unless, in accordance with paragraph 13(4) or, as the case may be, 14(4), it either—

(a)cancels those requirements, or

(b)substitutes for those requirements other requirements which can be complied with if the offender resides in the new local justice area mentioned in paragraph 13(2) or (as the case may be) 14(2).

(3)If—

(a)the application under paragraph 13(1)(c) or 14(1)(c) was made by the responsible officer, and

(b)the youth rehabilitation order contains specific area requirements,

the court must, unless it considers it inappropriate to do so, so exercise its powers under paragraph 13(4) or, as the case may be, 14(4) that it is not prevented by sub-paragraph (2) from amending the order under paragraph 13(2) or, as the case may be, 14(2).

(4)The court may not under paragraph 13(2) or, as the case may be, 14(2) amend a youth rehabilitation order imposing a programme requirement unless the court is satisfied that a programme which—

(a)corresponds as nearly as practicable to the programme specified in the order for the purposes of that requirement, and

(b)is suitable for the offender,

is available in the new local justice area.

Exercise of powers under paragraph 13(4) or 14(4): further provisions

16(1)Any requirement imposed under paragraph 13(4)(b) or 14(4)(b) must be capable of being complied with before the date specified under paragraph 32(1) of Schedule 1.

(2)Where—

(a)a youth rehabilitation order imposes a fostering requirement (the “original requirement”), and

(b)under paragraph 13(4)(b) or 14(4)(b) a court proposes to substitute a new fostering requirement (“the substitute requirement”) for the original requirement,

paragraph 18(2) of Schedule 1 applies in relation to the substitute requirement as if the reference to the period of 12 months beginning with the date on which the original requirement first had effect were a reference to the period of 18 months beginning with that date.

(3)The court may not under paragraph 13(4) or 14(4) impose—

(a)a mental health treatment requirement,

(b)a drug treatment requirement, or

(c)a drug testing requirement,

unless the offender has expressed willingness to comply with the requirement.

(4)If an offender fails to express willingness to comply with a mental health treatment requirement, a drug treatment requirement or a drug testing requirement which the court proposes to impose under paragraph 13(4) or 14(4), the court may—

(a)revoke the youth rehabilitation order, and

(b)deal with the offender, for the offence in respect of which the order was made, in any way in which that court could have dealt with the offender for that offence (had the offender been before that court to be dealt with for it).

(5)In dealing with the offender under sub-paragraph (4)(b), the court must take into account the extent to which the offender has complied with the order.

Extension of unpaid work requirement

17Where—

(a)a youth rehabilitation order imposing an unpaid work requirement is in force in respect of an offender, and

(b)on the application of the offender or the responsible officer, it appears to the appropriate court that it would be in the interests of justice to do so having regard to circumstances which have arisen since the order was made,

the court may, in relation to the order, extend the period of 12 months specified in paragraph 10(6) of Schedule 1.
