Sample text

1 indicates, the modal number of conditions included in the orders examined was two, and the median three. No condition was imposed differentially according to gender or ethnicity. Interestingly, those on whom geographic restrictions were placed were significantly older than those not restricted in that way. This was the only condition showing a significant age difference. 2 shows the distribution of conditions by type. The most common condition was not to visit a particular area. The condition not to engage in a type of crime was seen by a number of respondents as odd since it prohibited offenders from engaging in an activity that was already designated as a criminal offence and therefore already prohibited.

Interestingly in this case, as in other similar cases, there was evidence of a very supportive mother who took on some of the responsibility and worked with her child to encourage a positive change in behaviour. Some parents either did not feel responsible for their children’s behaviour or else were opposed to them receiving ASBOs. A number of agency representatives expressed the view that some parents of young people given ASBOs welcomed the intervention because they felt that their children were getting out of control and that in some cases that the ASBO mobilised peer pressure, which was seen to be effective in modifying the attitudes of these young people.

Increased anti-social behaviour Seven of those interviewed reported that their offending behaviour had increased after being issued with an ASBO. This group often reported intentionally behaving in contravention of their order. As one 37-year-old male who had been given an ASBO for persistent begging stated: ‘I want to do certain things, just to be arrested because of this stupid ASBO. It is like a little child, you can’t do this, you can’t do that, don’t touch this, don’t touch that. ’ Young people and their families in particular reported feeling stigmatised as a result of receiving an ASBO.
