620. Offences that cannot be taken into consideration.

It is generally undesirable for offences to be taken into consideration1:

  1.  

    (1)     where the offence is likely to attract a greater sentence than the conviction offence2;

  2.  

    (2)     where it is in the public interest that the offence should be the subject of a separate charge;

  3.  

    (3)     where the offender would avoid a prohibition, ancillary order or similar consequence which it would have been appropriate to impose on conviction;

  4.  

    (4)     where the offence constitutes the breach of an earlier sentence3;

  5.  

    (5)     where the offence is a specified offence4 but the conviction offence is not; or
