Custody Plus Order Law and Legal Definition

A custody plus order refers to a conviction imposed for a criminal offense. The order substitutes a custodial sentence of less than twelve months and furnishes for a further period of supervision in the community after the offender is released. Generally, all prison sentences of less than twelve months should consist of a short custodial period followed by a longer license period during which the offender must comply with the requirements imposed by the court as part of the custody plus order.
