Certified adult and EJJ prosecution

"Extended Jurisdiction Juvenile
While some juveniles may be sent immediately to criminal court, the prosecutor or the court may decide to try the case as an Extended Jurisdiction Juvenile prosecution. Generally, the juvenile would need to have been age 14 to 17 at the time of the offense and the charge must be a felony level offense. EJJ cases essentially mean that the juvenile is given a juvenile disposition and the adult sentence is stayed – meaning the juvenile is first given the chance to complete the terms of the juvenile disposition. If the juvenile fails to complete the juvenile disposition, the adult sentence, which may include incarceration in an adult correctional facility, takes effect."
