Recent case highlights the dangers and disproportionate manner in which CBOs can be imposed
In April 2016 a 15-year-old was given a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) following a conviction for using an imitation firearm to threaten a 14-year-old. This is the first time a youth has been tagged as part of a condition of a CBO.
Criminal Behaviour Orders are the new post-conviction ASBOs
On 20 October 2014, new anti-social behaviour (ASB) sanctions were introduced and Criminal Behaviour Orders (CBOs) replaced post-conviction anti-social behaviour orders (ASBOs).
