The number of states that have no minimum age for prosecuting children. Florida has the lowest established minimum age for juvenile prosecution at 7 years old; the age was raised a year after a 6-year-old was arrested at her school for kicking and punching staff members while throwing a tantrum in 2019. New Hampshire has the oldest minimum age set at 13 years old.
