Criminal law - Failing to register as a sex offender - Detention and training order - Whether defendant being person sentenced to equivalent of imprisonment for more or less than six months - Whether period of detention defendant liable to serve being reference to entire term of detention and training order or period of detention - Whether defendant subject to notification requirements.
For the purposes of s131 of the the period of detention which the offender was 'liable to serve' was to be treated not as a reference to the entire term of the detention and training order, but to the period of detention and training itself. Accordingly, in the instant case, where the defendant had been sentenced to a 12-month detention and training order, he had been sentenced to the equivalent of a sentence of imprisonment for a term of six months. He had been under18 at the relevant date. Accordingly, the relevant notification period for him had been three-and-a-half years from the date of conviction.
