When the court adjourns a case (moves the case to another date), it may decide to remand the young person, particularly when they are charged with more serious offences. If the court chooses to remand a young person, it can remand them on conditional or unconditional bail, to local authority accommodation or, with effect from 3 December 2012, to youth detention accommodation (a 12-17 year old can be remanded to youth detention accommodation, rather than local authority accommodation, if they meet one of two sets of conditions; the first are based on the type of offending and the second are based on the history of absconding or offending together with whether there is a real prospect of a custodial sentence).
