Factors Which May Affect Sentencing under The Young Offenders Act or The Youth Criminal Justice Act

The Criminal Code of Canada, the Young Offenders Act, the Youth Criminal Justice Act, and other statutes contain maximum penalties only. Actual sentence imposed will be within the maximum for the specific offence or offences and will be based on many factors.

Please note that the Sentences Imposed on Young Offenders Tables show a spectrum or range of probable sentences based on the history of previous dispositions in the Ontario Court (Provincial Division) Family Court at Brampton. Consult a lawyer to assist you in preparation for sentencing. Your lawyer will gather evidence for sentencing purposes and make persuasive submissions to the Court respecting your unique case. Some of the following factors may be considered by your lawyer, by the Crown, and by the Court in imposing sentence under the Young Offenders Act.
