491. Imprisonment.

Imprisonment is a punishment available only to the Court Martial1 and the Service Civilian Court2, and may not be imposed on any person aged under 213. The court must pass a separate sentence in respect of each offence of which a person is convicted4. In common with every other form of custodial sentences which can be passed by either court, the court must not pass such a sentence unless it is of the opinion that the offence, or the combination of the offence and one or more offences associated with it, was so serious that no less severe sentence can be justified f
