A juvenile or youth between the ages of 12 and (under) 18 who commits a criminal offence in Toronto will be prosecuted under the Youth Criminal Justice Act of Canada (YCJA), which came into effect on April 21, 2003, replacing the Young Offender’s Act. They will be tried in juvenile court.
Children under the age of 12 generally do not receive convictions for crimes, while in other circumstances, minors between the ages of 14 and 18 can be tried in adult court under the Criminal Code of Canada for especially heinous crimes, usually violence-related.
It is in your child’s best interest to consult with a professional, qualified legal advisor. Our dedicated law team of Bruce Karten & Stephen Hebscher have over 65 years of experience standing up to the courts and defending the rights of juveniles who should not have to pay the rest of their lives for making immature decisions as a minor. We will work aggressively to have the allegations against your child dropped or minimized. Our goal is to help your child succeed and get a second chance at life.
