Cornwall, ON – A 14-year-old Cornwall youth was arrested on December 11th, 2014 and charged with arson. It is alleged that on November 26th, 2014 police attended a Second Street West home in relation to a suspicious fire and an investigation ensued. On December 11th, 2014 during their investigation the youth was taken into custody, charged accordingly and held for a bail hearing. Her name was not released as per provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
I think it’s time that the definition of what a youth and what an adult is redefined in the criminal code.
