Transcript of YCJA VS. CRIMINAL CODE

Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) Main Points 1. The YCJA usually deals with 12-17 year old's that get in trouble with the law. 2. This act allows young offenders to face consequences such as counselling, and community service. 3. Prohibits adult sentences for youths 12-14 years of age. This act allows adult sentences for young people who are 14 years of age, and older who have committed serious crimes. 4. The YCJA also protects the privacy of many young offenders, but the news media may not publish their names , unless they receive an adult sentence. 5. Last, but not least, the YCJA allows most of the young offenders to avoid a criminal record. Factors of the consequence young offenders face. 1. The seriousness of the offenders, but a violent offence is more serious than a non-violent offence. 2. The history of the young person. If you get in trouble more then 1 time, you will face more serious consequences, than a person who has only gotten in trouble once. 3. The attitude of the young person. When a person (young) admits to what they did (take responsibility) they will face less serious consequences, than someone who denies what they did. 4. The circumstances of the young person. There are many different circumstances, but it all depends on what you do. Using this as an example, say a young persons actions are abusive or something to a person, or community, they may need support from a social worker, more than consequences from a justice system. Main points of the criminal code of Canada 1. This code deals with adults that are in trouble with the law. 2. usually breaking the law, you have to face consequences, but going to court would be made as the usual consequence, if you broke the law. 3. It also defines adult sentences, which could include long periods of imprisonment for some crimes. 4. This code also allows the publication of offenders' names. 5. For most of the offenders, the CCOC creates a criminal record. Similarities: Differences of the YCJA: Differences of the CCC: . Deals with young offenders. .

I think it should be harder on people who have done more than 1 crime, but on the other side, it should be easier on people who has only done a crime ONCE.
