Can a juvenile detained be held in an adult facility in NJ?

If the juvenile is to be detained, they must be detained in a juvenile detention center and not a County Jail. If they are over the age of eighteen then it is possible for them to be transferred from the local detention center to the local county jail where they will be housed with adults. Typically speaking, the juveniles stay detained in the local juvenile detention center as their case winds through the juvenile criminal justice system.
