Frequently asked questions
Can a juvenile get bail?
In the state of Connecticut, juveniles charged with criminal acts are treated differently than adults:
- Persons under the age of 16 are not considered criminally responsible except in the case of violent crimes.
- Youths under the age of 16 charged with non-violent crimes are tried in juvenile court.
Juvenile courts differ from criminal courts for adults in their intended purpose: rehabilitation and reintegration of the underage person as opposed to punishment. A juvenile is granted freedom based solely on the decision of the court.
However, a juvenile can be granted bail rights if a decision is made to have them transferred to a criminal court and tried as an adult instead:
- Juveniles over 16 can be tried as adults.
- Juveniles under the age of 16 charged with violent criminal acts may be tried as adults or treated as serious juvenile offenders.
Serious juvenile offenders are subjected to more severe sentencing than other juveniles.
The following interrelated limitations apply:
- A juvenile cannot post bail on their behalf. However, although juveniles do not have a constitutional right to seek bail, they are frequently released to their parents or guardians based on the decision of the juvenile court.
- A person must be over 18 to post bail for a juvenile.
- Only a parent or legal guardian can bail a juvenile out of jail.
How do juvenile bail bonds differ from bail bonds for adults?
Identical restrictions and requirements that apply to adult bail apply to juvenile bail, except that juvenile bail bonds may come with an additional requirement: the juvenile’s parent or legal custodian would need to sign the document and assume the responsibility for the juvenile person’s court appearance. In other words, juveniles must follow the conditions of bail set by the judge.
How old do you have to be to bail someone out?
In the U.S., underage individuals cannot enter into any legal contract. That means that a person must be 18 to be able to bail someone out of jail, and many bail bond companies in Connecticut may even require the person posting bail to be 21 or older.
Why are juveniles being tried as adults?
In some states children as young as 13 charged with more serious crimes can be tried as adults, and a few states try minors charged with serious violent crimes in criminal courts regardless of their age at the time they allegedly committed the crime.
However, in Connecticut and most other states, a juvenile offender must be 16 or older to be eligible for waiver to adult court, in which case bail may be set and the juvenile may be eligible for release on bail bond.
Other special circumstances should also be considered:
- Although a juvenile over 16 may be tried as an adult regardless of charges, juveniles under 16 charged with serious violent crimes or with a history of criminal activity can be tried in adult courts.
- A juvenile under 16 may be tried as an adult or treated as a serious juvenile offender if they are facing charges for committing serious juvenile offenses.
- For other charges of juveniles under 16, it is up to the judge to decide whether to treat the child as an adult or a juvenile.
- Children between the ages of 14 and 18 may also be tried as adults for minor crimes which do not involve jail time (youthful offenders). The penalty for youths under 16 being adjudged a juvenile delinquents for violation of a federal or state law or a local ordinance may include placement in a state institution for juveniles or other forms of rehabilitation and reintegration.
