Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012

Status:

This is the original version (as it was originally enacted).

Remands

91Remands of children otherwise than on bail

(1)This section applies where—

(a)a court deals with a child charged with or convicted of one or more offences by remanding the child, and

(b)the child is not released on bail.

(2)This section also applies where—

(a)a court remands a child in connection with extradition proceedings, and

(b)the child is not released on bail.

(3)Subject to subsection (4), the court must remand the child to local authority accommodation in accordance with section 92.

(4)The court may instead remand the child to youth detention accommodation in accordance with section 102 where—

(a)in the case of a child remanded under subsection (1), the first or second set of conditions for such a remand (see sections 98 and 99) is met in relation to the child, or

(b)in the case of a child remanded under subsection (2), the first or second set of conditions for such a remand in an extradition case (see sections 100 and 101) is met in relation to the child.

(5)This section is subject to section 128(7) of the Magistrates’ Courts Act 1980 (remands to police detention for periods of not more than 3 days); but that provision has effect in relation to a child as if for the reference to 3 clear days there were substituted a reference to 24 hours.

(6)In this Chapter, “child” means a person under the age of 18.

(7)References in this Chapter (other than in relation to extradition proceedings) to the remand of a child include a reference to—

(a)the sending of a child for trial, and

(b)the committal of a child for sentence,

and related expressions are to be construed accordingly.

(8)Before the insertion of section 51A of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 (sending cases to the Crown Court: children and young persons) by Schedule 3 to the Criminal Justice Act 2003 is fully in force, subsection (7) has effect as if it also referred to the committal of a child for trial.

(9)Subsection (7) also applies to any provision of an Act other than this Act that refers (directly or indirectly) to the remand of a child under this section.
