Anti Social Behaviour in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • R v Shane Tony P; R v Shane Tony Parkin
    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 03 Febrero 2004

    We do not go so far as to suggest that anti-social behaviour orders are necessarily inappropriate in cases with characteristics such as the present. But where custodial sentences in excess of a few months are passed, and offenders are liable to be released on licence, circumstances in which there is demonstrable necessity to make anti-social behaviour orders are likely to be limited.

  • R
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 20 Mayo 2002

    In my judgment, where an anti-social behaviour order has been imposed, that is a factor which reinforces, and in some cases may strongly reinforce, the general public interest in the public disclosure of court proceedings. The public has a particular interest in knowing who in its midst has been responsible for such outrageous behaviour.

  • R v Kirby (Lee)
    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 04 Mayo 2005

    In our judgment this decision of the court and the earlier case of C serve to demonstrate that to make an anti-social behaviour order in a case such as the present case, where the underlying objective was to give the court higher sentencing powers in the event of future similar offending, is not a use of the power which should normally be exercised.

  • Birmingham City Council v Gavin James The SEcretary of State for the Home Department (Intervener)
    • Court of Appeal (Civil Division)
    • 17 Mayo 2013

    Although some kinds of gang activity may be classified under the generic description of anti-social behaviour, section 1(1) of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 was not enacted with a view to dealing specifically with the consequences of gang culture.

  • R v Dean Boness; R v Shaun Anthony Bebbington
    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 14 Octubre 2005

    It follows from the requirement that the order must be necessary to protect persons from further anti-social acts by him, that the court should not impose an order which prohibits an offender from committing a specified criminal offence if the sentence which could be passed following conviction for the offence should be a sufficient deterrent.

  • C v Sunderland Youth Court and Northumbria Police and Crown Prosecution Service
    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 09 Octubre 2003

    While section 1C does not prescribe any particular procedure for making an order, whether the proceedings are civil or criminal it is common ground that, in making an order, the Magistrates' Court must act fairly and have regard to all relevant considerations. What fairness requires and what considerations are relevant will depend upon the circumstances of each particular case.

    • Queen's Bench Division (Administrative Court)
    • 14 Mayo 2004

    Before turning to the particular finding in this case, we should observe that section 127 relates only to proceedings for an anti-social behaviour order in the magistrates courts. There is provision in the Act, in section 1B, for county courts to make an anti-social behaviour order if satisfied of the same two constituents following the making of an order in the county court proceedings.
