is Judges remand different from remand?

My boyfriend is now on judges remand. How does this differ from normal remand?







Triple O
Here are the different types of remand custody. The majority of those who are in custody on remand are remanded in custody awaiting trial and have not been convicted of a criminal offence. A prisoner who is held on Judges Remand has been convicted and is waiting to be sentenced. As a rule once on Judges Remand a prisoner will follow the same regime as a convicted and sentenced prisoner. Why does the court remand an individual in custody? The Bail Act 1976 intends that, unless there are strong reasons to the contrary an individual will be remanded on bail with appropriate conditions attached. There is no presumption in favour of bail where an individual has been charged with murder, attempted murder, manslaughter, rape or attempted rape. The following are reasons for bail being refused :- * The individual has been accused of committing a particularly serious offence. * The individual has previous convictions for similar offences * There is reason to believe that the individual may disappear before their trial. * There is reason to believe that the individual may interfere with witnesses. * It is likely that the individual will commit further offences before their trial. * If an individual did not obey the terms of a previous community sentence, then custodial remand rather than bail maybe imposed.

A remand can refer to a case or a person. If a case is remanded it is sent to a lower court for reconsideration. In the context of an individual, a judge may remand someone into custody - back to jail/prison. Here is some more info when a person is remanded into custody - Good luck!: Remand The police or court may refuse bail and place you on remand if: You are accused or have been convicted of an offence while you were on bail. They feel you should be remanded for your own protection. You are already in custody. There has not been enough time for the court to get information that would enable them to make a bail decision. Your case has been adjourned for a report to be written and the court do not believe this can be done unless you are remanded. You are convicted of a serious offence. You have been previously convicted of a serious offence. What Will Happen to Me If I Am Remanded This will depend on what legal grounds apply to your case. You may be: Remanded to local authority This means that where you live will be decided by the youth offending team and could be at home, in foster care, in supported lodgings or in a children's home. Remand to local authority secure accommodation If the court feel that you are a risk to yourself or others or will run away from a place such as those above, they will make an order that you must live in a secure children's home. Remand to Custody if you are a male and aged over 15 the court may place you in prison or a remand centre. Wherever you are placed during your remand you will receive regular visits from a Youth Offending Team Worker who will give you support and consider whether to ask the court to bail you when you next appear. Your family and relatives can also visit you. What Can I Do If I Disagree With The Police Or Court Decision You will have to do whatever the court or police say but your position will be reconsidered at regular set times during the period of Bail or Remand. You should ask your solicitor or barrister to request that your bail conditions be changed, or that you be bailed or released unconditionally.

I think you're mistaken. When a case is "remanded" that means its sent back to the lower court for some specified reason. The term does not apply to the individual, but is a procedural term. I bow to the answer submitted by the other poster. I hadn't even considered the term in the context of criminal litigation. Plus, given his answer I am once again reminded that the law is similar, but very different on the other side of the Atlantic.
