Can Children Be Imprisoned in Georgia?
In some cases, children in Georgia can be placed into the custody of the Department of Corrections if convicted of crimes that would warrant the death penalty or life in prison in a superior court.
Minors accused of crimes can only be imprisoned as adults if they are tried as adults, which only happens in cases of severe crimes, such as:
- Aggravated assault
- Rape or sexual violence
- Any other serious crime that the minor committed deliberately with full knowledge of the implications of their actions
Otherwise, minors convicted of crimes can be subject to other penalties, including, but not limited to:
- Supervised or unsupervised probation
- Detainment in a relevant institution
- Juvenile detention
- Community service
- Counseling for the child and/or family members
- Driver’s license suspension
- Thousands of dollars in fines
- Enrollment in driving education programs, depending on the nature of the traffic offense
- Mandatory completion of a GED program
