YJLC Legal Guide to Child Criminal Exploitation

Legal Guide – Child Criminal Exploitation

This is the third in our series of legal guides on key youth justice issues and was produced in collaboration with the Children’s Rights Group at Doughty Street Chambers.

This guide will assist criminal practitioners representing children who have been exploited and are charged with offences arising out of that exploitation.

Children who have been the subject of criminal exploitation should be recognised as victims, not perpetrators. Practitioners must know how to identify when child suspects are potential victims of CCE and know what steps to take next.
