Entitled “Sebastien’s Law“, these amendments make the protection of society a primary goal; simplify the rules to keep violent and repeat young offenders off the streets while awaiting trial; require the courts to consider adult sentences for youth convicted of the most serious crimes (murder, attempted murder, manslaughter and aggravated assault); enable the courts to impose more appropriate sentences on other violent and repeat offenders, and require the courts to consider publishing the name of a violent young offender when necessary for the protection of society. Justice Canada.
