Can my child be tried as an adult?

In some cases in Florida, juveniles are charged in adult court and can go on trial as adults. There are various statutes that speak to whether or not, or under what circumstances a juvenile can be charged as an adult. Some of it is mandatory and some of it’s discretionary, but it’s not uncommon in Florida for juveniles charged with serious crimes to be charged as an adult and have their case pending in adult court.
