No! Unless it's a violent crime that is rape or murder or theft the best thing you can do is take them outside and give them 39 lashes and cut them loose they will remember that lesson a lot better than sitting there in the jail where they will just laugh about what they did and learn how to do it better next time

Depends on the age of the teen and the crime

If the teen is 18 or older, definitely. IMHO if they commit a felony they should be treated as an adult down to age 16. Below that I think the courts need to look at the situation.

It depends on what you mean by "teens," for example, if you mean 13, no, but if you mean 19, yes. So the answer to that question requires the question itself contain more specificity.

some teens are tried as adults. it depends on the nature of the crime, and how old they are. technically, 18 and 19 are still teens. but also adults. but there are cases as young as 14 or 15 where they are tried as adults.
