A conviction under the YCJA will result in a youth criminal record. The different sentences available to young offenders differ on how they are recorded in the youth criminal record, how long the record lasts, and whether anything can prevent the record from being sealed. A youth criminal record does not simply disappear at the age of 18 and can have serious consequences. As a parent or guardian, it is crucial that you are advised of your child’s rights and receive the best possible legal advice to protect your child’s future.
