Range of Sentences available in Victoria

Generally speaking, the range of sentence from most lenient to most onerous is as follows:

  1. Absolute Discharge
  2. Conditional Discharge
  3. Curative Discharge
  4. Fine Order
  5. Suspended Sentence and Probation
  6. Conditional Sentence Order (a.k.a. House Arrest)
  7. Intermittent Jail Time (a.k.a. Weekend Jail)
  8. Straight Jail Time

A Discharge of any type is the best possible sentence you can receive short of a Resolution. A Discharge means that the Court has found you guilty of a criminal offence, but rather than entering a conviction against you, has chosen to show leniency and ‘discharge’ you, either conditionally or absolutely.
