S.C. raising ‘juvenile’ age to 18


SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – Starting next month South Carolina will raise the age at which a suspect is considered a juvenile.

Right now anyone 17-years-old or older is charged as an adult.

Starting July 1, the age will increase to 18.

The law was signed by then-governor Nikki Haley in 2016 but implementation was delayed until this year.
