Criminal Behaviour Orders come into force from the 20th October 2014 and are a direct replacement for criminal Anti-Social-Behaviour Orders crASBOs.  CBOs (which will no doubt to be nicknamed CrimBos) will not replace existing ASBOs which will remain in force and breaches dealt with just as before. But no new ASBOs will be made after this date, instead the new orders will be made.  


Facing a Criminal Behaviour Order

Often but not always, clients who may be subject of a proposed Criminal Behaviour Order are youths or vulnerable people. The provisions of the CBO can have a negative impact on the clients wellbeing and stresses.

Mortons Solicitors support our clients throughout the application and hearings using our knowledge and understanding of these cases.

When CBOs are in force, Mortons Solicitors will expertly and diligently represent clients the same as previously with applications for Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) since their inception in 1998.

This is a specialist area of law involving the latest legal provisions of Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime & Policing Act 2014 and no case law where any client without specialist legal representation are at a significant disadvantage.

This is made all the more important by the seriousness consequences of breaching the order which can result in immediate imprisonment.
