Criminal Justice and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2010

Paragraph 32The Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 (c.53).

823.Paragraph 32(2) removes reference to probation order in respect of the rehabilitation period for particular sentences in the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. A community payback order is designated a sentence (unlike a probation order) and so is covered under the general provisions and does not need to be specifically referred to.

824.Paragraph 32(3) also removes references to probation orders in respect of the rehabilitation period applicable to a conviction in section 6(3) of the 1974 Act.
