Sentencing young people guideline videos
The Scottish Sentencing Council has created three short animated videos to explain the key themes of its sentencing young people guideline: maturity, rehabilitation, and the individualised approach.
Learn how intellectual and emotional maturity relates to a young person’s level of blame for an offence
Learn why rehabilitation is a primary consideration in sentencing a young person
An individualised approach takes into account background and circumstances, including the impact of any trauma or adverse childhood experiences
