Accountable Undertaking – This is the same as a non-accountable undertaking, however it gives the court the power to deal with the child or parent if they breach the undertaking.
s.365 Children, Youth & Families Act 2005
If the Court finds a child guilty of an offence, whether indictable or summary, the Court may, without conviction, dismiss the charge in accordance with section 363, and order that on breach of the undertaking by the child, the child be made accountable and dealt with for the breach under section 366.
If a parent or child breaches their accountable undertaking, the Court will require that they be bought back before the Magistrate who took the original undertaking.
The court may then:
1) Cancel the undertaking;
2) Vary or continue the undertaking (but not extend the duration of the undertaking); or
3) Revoke the undertaking and fine the parent or child up to one penalty unit.
