Good Behaviour Bond

In accordance to section 9 of the Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act, instead of imposing a sentence of imprisonment to an offender, the court may make an order directing the offender to enter into a good behaviour bondThis Order requires an offender to be of good behavior for a specific period of time, not exceeding 5 years. Under s10, a good behavior bond may imposed with or without conviction being recorded. Within this bond, the court will impose certain conditions which the offender must obey during the term of the bond. Some of the conditions which may be imposed include:

  • Counseling
  • Probation Service Supervision
  • Residence at a rehabilitation centre

If the conditions of the good behavior bond are obeyed, there is no further penalty. However, if these conditions are breached the court can choose to take any of the following actions:

  • vary the conditions of the bond
  • impose further conditions on the bond
  • revoke the bond and re-sentence to a harsher penalty
  • choose to take no action
