Suspended sentence

Like a conditional discharge, a suspended sentence involves following conditions in a probation order for a period of one to three years.

The main difference between a conditional discharge and a suspended sentence is that an offender who gets a suspended sentence has a conviction registered against them. This means that the offender who gets a suspended sentence will have a criminal record and will have to apply for a pardon to have the conviction removed from their record.
