The London Community Rehabilitation Company works with offenders to help them lead responsible and law abiding lives.
Our over-riding aim is to reduce reoffending and protect the public.
Suspended Sentence Order

A Suspended Sentence Order is a sentence of less than 12 months in prison, suspended for between six months and two years.


It includes the same requirements as those available for the community order.  Find more about community orders.


A breach of the order would result in a return to court for all or part of the original prison sentence to be imposed or, in some cases, for the order to continue but the requirements made more onerous.
