A 15yo boy has been charged with a sexual offence against a girl under the age of 16 in Victoria. Does his parents have a right to access the evidence the police are using to charge him prior to appearing in court? The police have taken over 6 months to issue the charge and have been reviewing CCTV to do so. Should the parents/legal aid bee able to review this as well? It would seem pretty unfair that the prosecution has had all this evidence and the first time the defence would get to see it is their day in court.
