Re-offending is when a person who has committed an offence (or offences) already, commits another offence.
Offenders released from prison into the community on licence can be recalled (brought back) to prison. For example, because they committed another crime, or otherwise breached the terms of their licence.
This can be helping people to change their offending behaviour and live productive lives in society. This could be training in life skills within prison or in the community.
A sentence is remitted when a sheriff sends a case to the High Court so that a more severe sentence can be given than the maximum allowed at the sheriff court level.
