Adults can also get other sentences that do not come under the custodial or

sentence category.

This includes fines which is an amount of

a person has to pay as

for a criminal offence. They're the most common in the

court where £5000 is the

fine for an individual (and £

for a business). If you fail to pay this fine then it may result in

and those who can’t afford to pay it may have to do unpaid work at £

per hour until they pay the debt off.

A

discharge is a sentence created for usually first time offenders of

crime and no

sentence is given. If an offence is committed in the time that the offender has been specified (

years maximum) then he will be sentenced for both the first and

offence. This should act as a

and the offender given

is not told the sentence he’ll get for the first crime.

Another sentence people may get is Absolute discharge. This is used where it would be unfair to give a

to someone convicted of a crime given the

that they were in (hence the punishment would serve no purpose); The offender was morally guilty but

for example speeding to rush a dying passenger to a hospital. This sentence is also used for when the offender is too

Offenders can also get disqualified from

. In the case of drink driving, this can last for a minimum of a

offenders can be banned for longer. Those who use cars to commit

orders is another one that’s similar to a compensation orders as the offender must return

taken from the victim.

for example) they may receive a forfeiture order where the profits are

by the

, used as evidence and then put back into the

system. This was introduced by the

of crime act 1995.

A deprivation order

the properties that offenders may have used to commit the crime (for example the

of

).

Offenders can get

sentences where the sentence is delayed for

months to see if a change in circumstances will change an offender's

(for example a new

).
