Criminal Proceedings (Computation of Sentences) Rules 1968

THE SUPERIOR NUMBER OF THE ROYAL COURT, in pursuance of Article 13 of the Royal Court (Jersey) Law 1948,[1] Article 29 of the Magistrate’s Court (Miscellaneous Provisions) (Jersey) Law 1949,[2] and of all other powers enabling it in this behalf, have made the following Rules –

Commencement [see endnotes]

1      Computation of sentences of imprisonment

(1)    The length of any sentence of imprisonment imposed on an offender by a court after the commencement of these rules shall be treated as reduced by any period during which the offender was in custody by reason only of having been committed to custody by an order of a court made in connection with any proceedings relating to that sentence or the offence for which it was passed or any proceedings from which those proceedings arose, but where the offender was previously –

(a)     subject to –

(i)     an order made under Article 2 of the Loi (1937) sur l’atténuation des peines et sur la mise en liberté surveillée[3], or

(ii)    a community service order made under the Criminal Justice (Community Service Orders) (Jersey) Law 2001[4], or

(b)     sentenced to imprisonment subject to a suspension order made under the Criminal Justice (Suspension of Prison Sentences) (Jersey) Law 2003[5],

in respect of that offence, any period falling before the order was made shall be disregarded for the purposes of this Rule.[6]

(2)    Any reference in any enactment (whether passed before or after the commencement of these rules) to the length of any sentence of imprisonment shall, unless the context otherwise requires, be construed as a reference to the sentence pronounced by the court and not the sentence as reduced by this rule.
