Median sentence

A reference in section 5A to a median sentence for sentences imposed for an offence is to a median where—

        (a)     both custodial and non-custodial sentences are considered, other than sentences imposed—

              (i)     on an offender for an offence committed when he or she was under the age of 18; or

              (ii)     for an offence heard and determined summarily; and

        (b)     if a total effective sentence is imposed in respect of 2 or more sentences, at least one of which is for a relevant offence, the term of the individual sentence for any such relevant offence is treated as the term of the sentence for that offence; and

        (c)     the length of that part of a partially suspended term of imprisonment that is not held in suspense is treated as the term of the sentence; and

        (d)     a wholly suspended term of imprisonment is treated as a non-custodial sentence; and

        (e)     a non-custodial sentence is treated as a term of imprisonment of zero months.
