QUESTION: Is it possible to prosecute a child who commits a crime in the same way an adult would be prosecuted?

In most cases, children who commit crimes are subject to the juvenile court system, a separate judicial system which emphasizes rehabilitation over punishment. However, children who commit serious crimes can be charged as adults. They will then be tried and punished through the regular judicial system.
