Section 61. Waiver of sentencing

Even if guilt is deemed proven, the court may, when exceptional reasons so warrant, waive sentencing.
In deciding whether exceptional circumstances apply, particular weight shall be given to whether imposing a sentence will have the effect of an unreasonable additional burden on the offender, provided that the purpose and effects of the penalty in general do not indicate that a sanction should be imposed.
Section 60, second paragraph, applies correspondingly.
