Suspended Sentence

Jump to:navigation, search

Suspended Sentence is the power in the hands of the Government to suspend sentence. Until the suspended sentence is proclaimed, the offender will be detained in the prison. Sanction of this is purely in the hands of the Government, discretionary in nature and is an administrative action.

Unlike Probation, Suspended Sentence can be granted irrespective of the age of the offender.
