Aboriginal Criminal Law Mock Sentencing Scenario: R. v. Brown
This Aboriginal sentencing scenario focuses on an Aboriginal youth who has already spent time in a youth detention centre for previous crimes. He has now been convicted of assault. A sentencing hearing ensues during which a victim impact statement is read. The scenario is followed by 8 discussion questions which can easily be used for class discussion or assigned as homework to an academically focused group. The scenario can be used in a mock sentencing hearing or mock sentencing conference/circle or both.
