Texas Juvenile Criminal Laws

A minor child can enter the juvenile system in Texas if they are between 10 and 16 years of age and charged with a criminal offense. However, if a child over 14 years old has committed a serious felony, they could be tried as an adult.

The most common juvenile crimes include:

The juvenile justice system is designed to rehabilitate juvenile offenders as opposed to punishing them in adult court. Common remedies for juvenile crimes include fines, education and rehabilitation, and community service work instead of jail time.

If a child is convicted of a felony offense, they could be sentenced to the Texas Youth Commission, perhaps until the age of the 21. In regard to felony violent and sex crimes, a child could be convicted as an adult.
