The second youth involved in the 2015 stabbing death of Hannah Leflar of Regina has been handed a youth sentence.
In court Tuesday morning, a judge ruled the Crown did not prove the teenager had enough moral blameworthiness or culpability in the crime to be sentenced as an adult.
The teen will remain anonymous because of his age at the time of the crime.
The teen — who is now 19 — was charged with first-degree murder in the 2015 death of 16-year old Hannah Leflar, but later pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.
The crown had been seeking an adult sentence much like the one Skylar Prockner received this past summer.
Prockner — who was 16 at the time — was convicted of first degree murder and received life in prison with no chance of parole for ten years.
If the teen had been sentenced as an adult, it would have resulted in a life prison sentence with no chance of parole for at least seven years.
The teen’s identity would have become public.
