In the US, anyone under 18 is usually not considered a full
"citizen", in the sense of "a person who has the protection
of the law", when convenient for any adult authority figure -
such as if said figure is the least bit concerned by the
juvenile's actions.

Whether or not this is legal (to my knowledge, it blatantly
is not) is another matter.
