Section 99: Second set of conditions for a remand to youth detention accommodation

518.Section 99 defines an alternative set of conditions that would enable the court to remand a child charged or convicted of an offence to youth detention accommodation. This set of conditions focuses on the behaviour of the offender while on remand. It applies if the child faces a realistic prospect of receiving a custodial sentence. In these circumstances, if they have or are alleged to have committed an offence while on remand in custody and have a recent history of absconding while on remand, or, alternatively, the offence forms part of a recent history of committing imprisonable offences while on remand (on bail or in custody) then they may be remanded securely pursuant to this section.
