Title Federal crossbenchers introduce bill to raise minimum age of criminal responsibility to 14 Degree of recognition National Media name/outlet ABC News Media type Radio Duration/Length/Size 4min 54sec Country Australia Date 14/10/19 Description The push to raise the age of criminal responsibility is growing, with crossbenchers tabling a bill in Parliament urging for it to be lifted from 10 to 14.
Advocates for the change deny it would lead to a soft-on-crime approach but simply bring Australia into line with international human rights standards.
But there is a reluctance among some to support it.
