      Thats FLIPPING awesome!!!!! I thought Louisiana was unique with the 17 deal, I had no idea there were states going at it at 16 thats awesome. Thats where I think it needs to be here. 16 is right about where I think it needs to be.

        Why not make it 10?

            Not here; you have to be 18 to go to jail. Anything younger (but older than 10) has to go to juvy. The problem is that you have to call and get permission from a supervisor at juvenile hall in order to bring a kid to jail. If the kid is a non-violent offender then it is impossible to get them in to juvy.

              In Okla 16 is legal for these purposes as long as she not intoxicated in any way. Not sure Id want to push this issue much but thats the law. For criminal purposes 18 and up. I'd kill for 17 to be the age. As anyone else does Im sure, we take a lot of mouth from 17 y/o who have been taught at home and school that they can do whatever they want.

                16 can be charged as an adult, they would not go to the adult jail (depends on crime), however they can be placed at our Juvenile detention Center. Most cases they are released to a parent or guardian.

                  Beleive it or not,I would be willing to bet it would help.At 17,they are pretty much "made",at 10,if you think to when you were 10,I am sure we ALL had something happen we remember BIG TIME,maybe a night in jail may be one to last a lifetime,and at 18 if you stay clean,all is forgiven,so to speak.(dontcha love run on sentences??)

                    17 is automatically an adult when an offender, but a juvenile when a victim. If an 18 year old batters a 17 year old, the 18 year old can be charged with physical abuse to a child.

The Code of Criminal Procedure and Family Code have different feelings on what is a juvenile when it comes to being entered as a runaway. CCP says under 18 is child, meaning that you can discipline until they're 18. Our dept. doesn't list a 17 year old as a runaway, but we'll list them as a missing person if we don't know where they're at. If we can get a hold of them or come about their whereabouts, we don't list them as missing. But we don't make them come home.

                      Little off topic, but that's my trouble with a 17 year old.
                      My understanding is under 18 can still be considered a runaway.

                        18 is an adult here. Juvenile can be waivered up but not unless it is a very serious offense. It sucks!!
