Four Corners - Go to Jail
This program won the WALKLEY AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN COVERAGE OF INDIGENOUS AFFAIRS in 2000.
Liz Jackson explores the human impact of the Northern Territory's mandatory sentencing laws. In February, 2000 a 15 year old Aboriginal boy hanged himself in a juvenile detention centre in Darwin. His action unleashed a furious national and international debate on the morality of Northern Territory's mandatory sentencing laws. Four Corners explores the human impact of these laws by speaking to Territory lawyers, politicians, magistrates and members of the Aboriginal community.
