The legal age is 18. Missouri like many other states has a stipulation in the juvenile code which refers to a person being at least 17 being an "adult". This law pertains to adjudication proceedings only. The term designates when a minor can be tried in an adult court. The age noted in the juvenile code DOES NOT supercede the state's actual age of majority which is as was noted, 18.
