Youth Criminal Justice Act

Version of section 75 from 2012-10-23 to 2019-09-18:

Marginal note:Decision regarding lifting of publication ban

  •  (1) When the youth justice court imposes a youth sentence on a young person who has been found guilty of a violent offence, the court shall decide whether it is appropriate to make an order lifting the ban on publication of information that would identify the young person as having been dealt with under this Act as referred to in subsection 110(1).

  • Marginal note:Order

    (2) A youth justice court may order a lifting of the ban on publication if the court determines, taking into account the purpose and principles set out in sections 3 and 38, that the young person poses a significant risk of committing another violent offence and the lifting of the ban is necessary to protect the public against that risk.

  • Marginal note:Onus

    (3) The onus of satisfying the youth justice court as to the appropriateness of lifting the ban is on the Attorney General.

  • Marginal note:Appeals

    (4) For the purposes of an appeal in accordance with section 37, an order under subsection (2) is part of the sentence.
