Australian state Victoria is seeking to put a stop to would-be Fagins recruiting artful dodgers to pick a pocket or two.

Daily Mail Australia reports adults who lure children into committing crimes could face up to 10 years behind bars under 'Fagin's Law', to be introduced to State Parliament next year in bid to target adults recruiting children to commit crimes.

Around 180 youths are responsible for almost one in four crimes in Victoria, including violent carjackings, armed robberies and home invasions, according to Crime Statistics Agency.
