Does anyone know who the youngest person who commited a crime was to be charged and prosecuted as an adult? I have been interested in this as of late. Thanks.

In Canada currently if your over 16 i think and you commit a serious crime (treason for example, however a 16 would do that, or murder) you can be tried as an adult, but if you under that age you can only be charged as a minor(you must be over the age of 13). I dont think that helped much.

it all depends on which country you are refering to, I have heard stories that a child as young as 8 was charged as an adult for manslaughter in some outragous country that i cannot remember. but it all depends on the country!

Which country? Or are you talking about the world as a whole? If so, that would be pretty hard to answer.

In the world, I wouldn't be suprised if a child of about 5 was executed somewhere in the last 25 years, possibly in the middle east. In America, I think it's 16 and in Britain it's either 16 or 18, but I think it's 18. If you are sent to prison and you're under 21 you get sent to a young offenders institution for people from 16 to 21, which is worse than normal prison, most say.

Sounds like when the slaves in egypt were let go thanks to Moses and they bitched and moaned about the same exact thing "At least in slavery we had food" and crap like that. And p.s. i was talking about US.

Is it wrong to execute the mentally ill people. like the ones who have no idea of what the hell they are doing and that gouging out peoples eyes with a spooon is wrong?

Well there are many people around dear who were young and been charged as an adult. There must be constraints on all such things and these practice must be stopped for the welfare of young ones.

Depends on the crime.

Arson, Murder, Manslaughter and the like would all get a kid tried as an adult in the UK I believe. Though circumstances may cause it to vary as well.

As a general rule though, in the UK at least you'll be tried as an adult when you're consdiered to know the ramifications of your actions. So 15-16 ish I think.
