Time is now running out for people to have their say and help shape an important sentencing guideline which will influence how up to 17,000 young people are sentenced by criminal courts in Scotland each year.
Watch our video about the court case of Jack, who assaulted a nightclub steward, and then decide what sentence you would give - if you were the judge. Our series also includes videos for: victims of crime; offenders & their families; and easy listen & watch. All our videos are now also available to view on our YouTube channel.
