Committing Offence Whilst on Youth Supervision Order

Committing Offence of BurglaryThis is a case of a teenage accused committing offence whilst on youth supervision order.

Our client was a 14-year old who was charged with 58 offences, including 5 counts of Burglary, 11 counts of Theft, and charges of Intentionally Causing Injury and False Imprisonment. These offences were committed whilst the client was on a Youth Supervision Order and, hence, the client was in breach of that order.

We acted on the client’s behalf at the Broadmeadows Children’s Court on the following charges:

After negotiating the withdrawal of a number of charges and amendments to the alleged summary of facts, the client entered pleas of guilty. Sentencing was adjourned and we requested psychological and pre-sentence reports to assist the court in understanding this client’s personal circumstances and background.

Ultimately, the court was persuaded to release the client from youth detention without recording the few weeks spent there. The client was released onto a 12-month Youth Supervision Order and there were no orders made in relation to the breach of the client’s prior supervision order. This was an excellent result especially of a case of committing offence whilst on youth supervision order.
