actually it depends on the crime most cases you are tried as an adult at the age of 16. Usually drug related crimes are tried at 16 but there have been cases where people under 16 were tried as adults usually multiple homisides.

How is a minor charged as an adult?

In the state of North Carolina an adult age in courts is 16, so if a 16 yr old commits a crime he/she will be tried in adult court. 14 year olds can also be tried in adult court if he/she commits a major felony. Say a 14 year old shoots his mom, he would be tried in adult court. Say a 14 yr old steals from a store, or some small crime, he will not be tried in adult court.
