What is the Age of Juvenile Jurisdiction in Texas?

In Texas, the age of juvenile jurisdiction is 10–16. A juvenile is a person who commits an offense between these ages and is at least ten but not yet 17 at the time of the act. Delinquent conduct violates a Texas penal law and can result in jail time. 

Can a Minor Be Charged With a Felony in Texas?

Yes, a minor can be charged with a felony in Texas. However, the state has a separate juvenile justice system for individuals between 10 and 17 years old. In some cases, prosecutors may seek to transfer a juvenile case to adult court for serious felonies, especially if the minor is 14 or 15 years old. For specific details and legal guidance on a juvenile felony case in Texas, consult an experienced attorney specializing in juvenile law.


Juveniles can be charged with any type of crime, just like adults. However, the punishments may be different and include loss of a driver's license or incarceration in a juvenile facility instead of jail. Juveniles are frequently charged with certain types of crimes, such as:

Understanding Juvenile Crimes

Juveniles also can be charged with more serious offenses, such as murder, manslaughter and DWI/DWI (drunk driving).

To deal with the juvenile charges, Rick Davis can negotiate with the prosecution or aggressively fight the case in court depending on what is the best course of action. By taking steps to see that the juvenile charges are reduced or dismissed, he is attempting to protect the juvenile's criminal record. A criminal record established at such an early age can follow young people throughout their lives, preventing them from obtaining entrance into schools, loans for education, residences and employment.

Crimes committed by a juvenile typically fall under the jurisdiction of the juvenile courts. Though these courts may operate differently than adult courts, the impact of an adjudication on a juvenile's life may have the same type of negative effect.
