Changes to Victoria’s bail laws

The Victorian government has removed penalties for under eighteens who breach bail conditions.

Youth justice group Smart Justice for Young People says the government has taken a considered and sensible approach to the bail law reforms.

But the Victorian Opposition has said the changes to bail laws sends the wrong message to young people.

Rochelle Kirkham has the story.
