Yes but then they need to be placed in a juvenile prison and then if the crime fits, to an adult prison when they reach the age of 18.

Jennifer Gonnerman, in her essay makes the case that, “Tyron has become a penal colony for kids,” The kids feel isolated because of the distance, location and conditions and treatment receive at the juvenile center. “The moment the wire fence went up,” They are being treated as prisoners, not only because of peer pressure as Maia said but Jennifer confirms it that the treatment receive in the center are likely a cause of them returning

NAME COURSE UNIVERSITY INSTRUCTOR Many are the times when juvenile have committed crimes, and there have always been minor delinquencies. In the last century or so, the constant development of our society and the juvenile cases have made life alternating changes in the minors’ lives and their cases. Juveniles began being tried as adults until it was pronounced unconstitutional to put a minor under a capital punishment.

I think in some ways its and advantage because it will help place habitual or serious offenders out of the community and into some other placement to get treatment.
