Offender Rehabilitation Act 2014

Offenders sentenced by service courts

Section 19: Amendments of Armed Forces Act 2006.

130.Section 19 gives effect to Schedule 6, which makes a number of amendments to the Armed Forces Act 2006 which are consequential on the other provisions of the Act.

131.Paragraph 2 of Schedule 6 is consequential on section 6 (supervision of certain young offenders after detention and training order).

132.Paragraph 3 is consequential on section 9 (recall and further release of offenders).

133.Paragraphs 4 to 11 relate to service community orders (community orders made by service courts in respect of offenders expected to reside in the United Kingdom), overseas community orders (made by service courts in respect of civilian offenders residing with the armed forces overseas), and suspended sentence orders with community requirements when made by service courts.

134.Paragraphs 4 to 7 are consequential on section 14 and Schedule 4 (officers responsible for implementing orders). Paragraphs 4 and 6 ensure that the new provisions relating to the enforcement of community orders do not apply to overseas community orders: as at present, the “responsible officer” is to be responsible for enforcement as well as supervision. Paragraph 5 relates to service community orders, and paragraph 7 to suspended sentence orders with community requirements made by service courts.

135.Paragraphs 8 to 11 are consequential on section 18 (duty to obtain permission before changing residence).
