Regina v Moss: CACD 3 Apr 2001

The court’s ability to make an order under the Act required that order to be made before the principle sentence was handed down. Once that had happened it was too late to make an order. Here the prosecution had not at first sought an order, and when it came to do so, the judge had already reached, but not announced, his sentencing decision. The judge proceeded with the sentence. The section laid down a clear and mandatory sequence to be followed.
