Skylar Prockner is heading to adult jail.
The teen killer of Hannah Leflar wanted to remain at the Paul Dojack Youth Centre until he turned 20 in April 2018.
Justice Jennifer Pritchard determined Prockner wouldn’t benefit from the youth programming provided there and would be better served in rehabilitation in an adult prison.
On Thursday, Prockner’s defence argued there was a safety issue if he were to be transferred to the Saskatchewan Penitentiary.
Crown lawyer Chris White is satisfied with the outcome.
“The issues raised by counsel for the accused during the hearing, it didn’t appear as they were significant enough to halt was it likely to be an inevitable transfer,” White said outside court.
Prockner pleaded guilty to stabbing Leflar to death in her north Regina home in January 2015. They were both 16 at the time.
He was sentenced as an adult in July.
Prockner is appealing that sentence but a date for that hearing has not yet been set. The appeal is unlikely to impact where he serves his time.
