A Eurobodalla teenager could spend up to three years in juvenile detention after leading police on a pursuit on the Princes Highway last month.
The 15-year-old boy, who can not be named for legal reasons, was sentenced to control orders in Batemans Bay Local Court on September 21, ending on August 23, 2020.
It follows his arrest at Termeil on August 26 after police said he threatened a 70-year-old woman with a knife at a Moruya supermarket, demanding the keys to her vehicle, before fleeing and leading police on a chase.
Police said the youth had approached a 47-year-old woman and a couple aged in their 70s in their homes before the carjacking.
The youth pleaded guilty to 10 charges on August 28, including two counts of demanding property with menaces with intent to steal; one count of robbery armed with an offensive weapon; one count of having custody of a knife in a public place; one count of destroying or damaging property; one count of being involved in a police pursuit; one count of never being licensed to drive a motor vehicle; two counts of assaulting a police officer in execution of his or her duty and one count of resisting or hindering a police officer in execution of his or her duty.
He was also disqualified from driving for five years.
