Scottish Sentencing Council extends consultation on sentencing guideline for young people

In light of the difficulties many individuals and organisations are experiencing as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Scottish Sentencing Council is extending the deadline for responding to the consultation on its sentencing young people draft guideline.

The consultation, will now be open until 21 August 2020, allowing interested parties an additional 3 months to submit responses. It is hoped that this extension will enable all those who wish to respond to the consultation to do so.
