[8] Maruna and Farrall (2004) indicate "primary desistance" (initial offence-free period) requires active participation or agency from individual. Also GIRFEC states importance of addressing initial concerns by single agency. In addition, McNeil (2009) adapts Sutton's ASPIRE (1999) model emphasising the importance of preparation, relationship - building and engagement in the desistance process. Court appearance can provide early opportunity for this, if the young person is supported appropriately.
