Youth Sentence Adjusted for Man Who Admitted to Yorkton Murder

The youth sentence has been altered for one of two people, who admitted to a 2016 murder in Yorkton.
A 20-year-old Yorkton man, who can’t be named because he was 17 at the time of the offence, will go from closed custody to open custody, so he can attend a post-secondary institution in Regina, starting in January.
However, he will still be held at the Paul Dojack Youth Centre until at least February of 2021.
In the late night hours of September 12th, 2016, two boys attacked 67-year-old Lawrence Skoretz at Jaycee Beach, stomping his head and chest area, breaking some of his ribs, and rupturing his spleen.

Skoretz tried to crawl home, but succumbed to his injuries.
