Youth found not guilty in bullying case: Queen's University professor


Queen’s University law professor Nick Bala is available to comment on the teen accused of robbery and assault in the Mitchell Wilson bullying case being found not guilty. Wilson, 11, committed suicide the day the trial was set to begin. His parents felt his suicide was related to the attack, the trial and bullying at school.

Bala is an expert in family and children’s law, juvenile justice and young offenders. He has co-authored reports for the Government of Ontario on the Office of Child Advocacy and is currently conducting research with child psychologists related to child witnesses, and with criminologists on youth justice issues.
