Notes on sentencing

Suspended sentence: The judge convicts the accused but suspends sentencing, and instead releases them on conditions set out in a probation order.

Conditional sentence: The judge gives the accused a jail term, but allows them to serve it in the community as long as they follow certain conditions. Often called house arrest.

Conditional discharge: The accused’s record won’t show a conviction if they meet conditions the judge sets out in a probation order.

Recognizance after allegation: An agreement to keep the peace and be of good behaviour when the court finds there are reasonable grounds that a person will commit an offence.

Victim surcharge: A fine levied by judges at their discretion during sentencing that goes toward helping victims of crime.
