CRIMES (SENTENCING) ACT 2005 - SECT 24

Non-association and place restriction orders—maximum period

    (1)     A non-association order or place restriction order—

        (a)     must be for a period not longer than—

              (i)     if the order is made with an intensive correction order or a drug and alcohol treatment order—24 months; or

              (ii)     in any other case—12 months; and

        (b)     must state when it starts and the period for which it operates.

    (2)     To remove any doubt, the period of a non-association order or place restriction order is not limited by the term of any other sentence imposed for the offence for which the order is made.

Example

Sean is convicted of an offence. The court decides that the appropriate penalty is 6 months imprisonment served by intensive correction and a place restriction order. The place restriction order may be for longer than 6 months (but not longer than 24 months).
