Can Juvenile Defendants Be Sentenced to Prison?

Even if convicted of the charges against them, most juveniles will not be sentenced to prison. If confinement is included in the penalties, most offenders will be sent to the Department of Youth Corrections rather than a state prison filled with full grown adults. There are rare instances where a juvenile is tried as an adult and sentenced to prison, but this is only when dealing with very severe crimes such as first-degree murder.

About juvenile diversion

  • First offenders are not usually sentenced to detention or prison
  • Many first offenders can avoid formal prosecution entirely through juvenile diversion
  • Juvenile diversion is an alternative to traditional court processes that keeps juvenile offenders out of the justice system while still holding them accountable for their actions
  • The offender will have to adhere to the terms of the diversion which may include counseling, community service, and other activities

Keep in mind that not all juvenile defendants are eligible for diversion. Repeat offenders or defendants charged with serious crimes could face up to two years at the Department of Youth Corrections. Additionally, if the defendant comes to court unprepared or with a clear lack of remorse for their alleged crimes, the prosecution will be less likely to offer diversion.

Will My Child Have a Criminal Record?

While there will be a record of the child’s arrest and offense, it is not treated the same as an adult’s criminal records. Juvenile records are not made public, and are only available to the defendant, their parents or guardian, their attorney, the probation department, the court, and law enforcement. While these records will still show up in background checks in certain states, it is possible to have the records expunged under the right circumstances.
