If an indictable only offence that is committed as a minor,

Resolved Question:

If an indictable only offence that is committed as a minor, under 16, is then tried and sentenced as an adult what sentencing guidelines tend to be applied? Would it be those that apply to a juvenile?

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
The relevant date is the date of conviction. If a person is convicted as an adult then the adult guidelines would apply.
Although youth is always a mitigating feature.
Can I clarify anything for you?
