I need advice for my story


#1

So, in my story the MC has been in juvie for a while. How long would be a good amount for getting out at 17 years old for hear crimes? So basically I’m asking how long should she have been in juvie.


#2

Is 2 1/2 years good? So that she goes in in the middle of freshman year, then returns during senior year.


#3

I would say about 15 years your MC goes in and comes out at 17 years. 2 years of juvenile probation so to speak. Very realistic for an underage offender.


#4

To make it even more realistic, you could mention the character having to have done community service or a sobriety program, which might justify the 2 years if a reader thinks it’s too small of a number.


#5

Typically Juvenile detention centers release the inmates when they reach the age 17 or 18 because they’re basically adults, but they can have a probation officer that they have to meet up with every once in a while to make sure that they haven’t broken the regulations in order to keep from going to jail.
