The last national government brought in changes to the youth court system, bringing seventeen year olds under its jurisdiction. The changes haven’t been in efect for long but there is already a problem that has resulted in a dual court process for some offenders. Under the changes, some offences were marked schedule 1A and required to be heard outside of the youth court. For those charged with these offences in combination with lesser ones they have to appear in front of both the youth court and potentially the high court. Lachlan spoke with Tania Sawicki Mead from JustSpeak bout the changes.
