Answer #1

kaitlynrocks,

Do you mean up to age 18? The Canadian Encyclopedia linked below says it’s 12-17 in Canada, also.

Answer #2

I have know people who have been locked up at age 8 and 9

Answer #3

It’s actually 12+.

Technically, ages 12 to 17 can be taken to juvie in Cali. But there are exceptions:

From the California Juvie site:

“Generally, any individual age 18 or older is considered an adult and treated as such in California. Depending on the circumstances, however, someone as young as 14 can be tried in the adult court system and sentenced to the California Department of Corrections (CDC) and housed in the California Youth Authority (CYA); and if 16 years old can be sent to prison. On the other hand, someone as old as 24 can be incarcerated as a juvenile in the CYA. “
