1. Introduction to ancillary orders
- There are several ancillary orders available in a magistrates’ court which should be considered in appropriate cases. The additional note lists the offences in respect of which certain orders are available. The individual offence guidelines also identify ancillary orders particularly likely to be relevant to the offence. In all cases, consult your legal adviser regarding available orders and their specific requirements and effects.
- Ancillary orders should be taken into account when assessing whether the overall penalty is commensurate with offence seriousness.
