Of course, in some states juvenile detainees can't be held past their 18th or 21st birthday. So, if a 17 year old commits rape or armed robbery and gets tried as a juvenile, he could be out in less than a year. If the same guy gets tried as an adult, he could serve much longer.


Not true. They are transferred to adult prison to server the remainder.

Only if charged as adults. If charged as juveniles they can't be sent to adult prison.

Of course, my favorite stupid law is the New York State statutory rape law. It never specifies that the perpetrator needs to be older than the victim to be charged. Consequently, if two 16-year-olds have sex, both sets of parents can press charges.
