    My partner was convicted of a breach of a suspended sentence. The judge ordered an Intensive Correction Order ( ICO) assessment to be done.

    We live in ACT. The offence was in NSW. Corrections have said they won't even consider assessing him because we live in ACT (which the judge knew at the time of sentencing). We have said we will move to NSW, but we want some assurance that if we do, he will pass the assessment. We have asked if they can do the rest of the assessment while we prepare to move, so we know if it's actually worth our while moving.

    Because it is court ordered, can they just say no, we aren't going to bother assessing you, even if you move?

    Are we able to have it transferred to ACT Corrections?

    Two conditions of an ICO are that the offender must reside only at premises approved by the supervisor and that they do not leave or remain outside of NSW so it makes sense that they are denying you entry into the NSW program. Is there an ICO program in the ACT?

    Is it jail if he is not approved for the ICO?

    I would take it up with the NSW department and ask them if you can be assessed and then move to NSW once accepted.

    Lawyers hit out at changes in ACT sentencing reforms
