Q. A child between the ages of 7-19 has committed a crime.
What will happen in court?
"Starting at age seven, children can go to court if they commit a crime. Where the case is tried and how the child is punished depends on the child’s age, intent and past record. Children who commit crimes fall into four categories: juvenile deliquent, juvenile offender, youthful offender and adolescent offender." CourtHelp
