Can a 15 year old go to jail for fighting?


Can a 15 year old go to jail for fighting? The answer to this question is YES.

Yes, a 15-year-old can go to jail if he or she have fought someone to death. The law is equal for everyone and no matter if you are a teen or an adult, the law always has a right to put you in jail. 

Once you fight with somebody, then there is always a probability of going to jail. All of it depends on the level of fighting, if it's normal then it's okay. But if it's too rough and harsh, and if you have killed someone out of rage and anger, then you will surely be dragged to jail.

Until and unless the fight ends up with a serious loss like death, you are safe with yourself. You will not be put in jail, however, if you end up fighting too harsh and rough, causing some serious injury or death. 

Then there is no law that can prevent you from going to jail. The law only considers the evidence and if it gets evidence of crime regarding you. Then nobody can save you from going to jail. This is a fact and it's valid all over the world, including our America.

Killing someone out of rage and anger is a crime and once you are caught performing it, you will literally go to jail. Fighting is, however, not a crime and only if you fight without causing any harm to the person you were fighting with. 

You are completely safe and will not be put into jail in any way. But if the results remain extremely serious and intense, then you will be surely taken to jail. You may be put to a separate compartment, other than the adult one. But you will surely be put inside jail without any prior notification.

Injuries that are normal and not that intense can't push you to jail. Most of the southern and western states doesn't even have a minimum age to imprison anyone. 

But if the end is highly serious and extreme like death. You will surely be put behind the bars at some stage of your imprisonment. Initially, you may be kept in someplace that is unlike the regular prison made for adults. But gradually you will be moved to the regular prison made for adults.

For some normal fight, you will not be imprisoned in jail, but if you are a school going, child. Then you will surely be suspended or excluded from your regular classes. You will be stopped from attending any class or studying in them. 

At this stage, you have to sit at home or have to sit in a Juvenile detention centre. Being in there, you have to do community service in the form of punishment. You will be asked to help people and communities being under their control.

So, it is well concluded that you will surely go to jail as a 15-year-old. If and only if the end of the fight is extremely serious like death.
