Youth Justice System in Shambles |TODAY|

This offender is a classic case of a justice system that’s inherently flawed. Despite a long rap sheet, he walked free from custody in 2004 from Windsor Court after a series of errors in the legal paper trail. He proved how powerless the courts are, too, stealing a car to make his way from Windsor to Halifax. It was the same vehicle that, two days later, slammed into McEvoy's, causing her death.
This particular offender should stay in jail for the maximum sentence and should be under keen watch once he’s released. And perhaps a face-to-face meeting under the Restorative Justice Program with the McEvoy family might wipe the smirk from the face of the young man who took Theresa McEvoy’s life.
