If a juvenile has first degree burglary and is sent to a residential program what would happen if he runs from that program but turns himself in when he turns eighteen years old?
There is no such thing as third-degree murder in Canada. Juvenile offenders can be sentenced to a maximum of 10 years confinement for first-degree murder. However, at 14 years of age, an offender charged with murder or manslaughter is automatically tried as an adult unless they can show cause why they should be tried as a juvenile. (Provinces may enact laws to increase that age to 15 or 16).
