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

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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    17 is automatically an adult for criminal purposes.

    10 to 17 can be waived into adult court if they committed any of the following offenses: (1) first-degree intentional homicide; 2) second-degree homicide; 3) reckless homicide; and 4) battery to a guard in a secured detention facility.

    14 year old's can be waived into adult court for sexual assault, car jacking or armed robbery.

    15 is the age for all other offenses.

    Also, once a juvenile has been waived into adult court for any offense, they are considered an adult for all future offenses.

    The Wisconsin Supreme Court just upheld a life without parole sentence for a 14 year old out of Green Bay.

I'm referring to an adult for ALL criminal offenses to include the smallest of misdemeanors, if you are 17 and you get arrested you go to adult jail that night no court hearings to determine if one is moved to adult court or stay in juvenile court, Juvie court here ends at 16. So in NC a 16 yr old is considered 100% an adult legally? or just in some instances? If it's 100% an adult I'm all for that. These criminals are getting younger and younger and more brazen and bold therefore they need to be cut down to size earlier.

    Younger than 15 'can be' considered adult depending on the charge here. 16 is flat across the board in NC, be it a traffic misdemeanor, to drugs, to fraud, to fights and everything in between. 16, you go to jail. Period. It's LOVELY.

    16 in NYS. Straight to jail; do not pass go, do not collect $200.

    17 is the age of consent.
