16 year-old begs for early release from youth detention

A 16 year-old boy from Queensland who had been sentenced to a six-month youth detention is getting released after only 32 days because he wasn’t enjoying it. After the reality of his detention set in his tough guy attitude disappeared and he pleaded for an early release.

His list of offences over the years includes:

  • Yelling abuse and squirting detergent from a vehicle.
  • Using a stolen credit card at McDonald’s, a petrol station and a supermarket.
  • Trespassing
  • Assaulting police
  • Attempted break-ins
  • and more

Hopefully his inability to cope with youth detention has been enough to set this boy straight as he will no doubt never want to return to youth detention or jail when he is older.
