What Is a Youth Offense?

Youth offenses include most, if not all, of the offenses included in the Criminal Code for adults. The difference is that the Youth Criminal Justice Acts invents rules that specify acts performed people between 12 and 17 years old be treated differently.

The acts that fall under the title of a youth offense include:

  • Robbery
  • Battery
  • Gang-related offenses
  • Vandalism
  • Shoplifting
  • Murder
  • Assault
  • Drug crimes
  • Theft

There are more crimes that can be described as a youth offense. The list above includes a broader range of acts. However, you can expect that any charge to a minor is considered a youth offense.

You can expect a sentencing from a youth offense to include a form of rehabilitation and reintegration with monitoring of the progress along the way. The purpose focuses more on reentering society as a law-abiding citizen as opposed to time spent in jail.
