Boy accused of aggravated home burglary hit with new charges

News Today || Headlines Today

A 12-year-old Geraldton boy who was released from Banksia Hill Detention Centre on Friday after “two potential suicide attempts” is in court again on new charges.

The boy appeared from custody in Geraldton Children’s Court on Tuesday charged with possession of stolen property, using a vehicle on a road without a licence, not wearing a helmet and behaving in a disorderly manner.

He is on his second strike for aggravated home burglary, among dozens of other charges and breaches, but was spared more jail time last week and given a final chance to curb his offending.

During his previous court appearance, the boy’s lawyer said the 12-year-old had been in Banksia Hill’s intensive supervision unit after “two potential suicide attempts”.
