THE INTERMOUNTAIN CATHOLIC, SEPTEMBER 17, 1904 P4
CRIME IN IRELAND
The prisons board have again to repeat their complaint that magistrates do not make use of their powers under the juvenile offenders’ act to avoid sending children to jail. “It is disappointing to find so many juvenile offenders imprisoned.”
The board gave a list of cases.
The worse came from Cork. No fewer than eight children between the ages of 9 and 11-12 were sent to jail from Cork in 1903 for “obstructing the footway.”
In Galway a little girl of 10 was sent to jail for seven days for trespass! Is it too much to say that the magistrates who did these things should get as many months as these children got days in prison!
