Can an adult be put in juvenile detention?

I understand that sometimes juveniles(under 18)can be put in adult jail. Well is it possible for an adult to be put in juvenile detention, or juvenile jail, whatever you want to call it? And I'm talking about a 19 year old adult.

    you would be waiting to press rates for working away, attempt calling the police(who will continually drag her back if she runs away) i'm undecided you want to nevertheless. She is 11, do you easily need to place her with youthful drug addicts, youthful females and adult adult males people with records of attack or different serious crimes(the juvenile justice device tries to keep away from locking little ones up till it is honestly needed). in case you incredibly think of it is all you're able to do then bypass forward, yet endure in concepts she would be waiting to be with some exceedingly undesirable impacts if she is admitted. If she would be waiting to no longer help around the homestead and is stealing you could evaluate stripping her of luxuries, lock the doorways to all pointless rooms, which is composed of her mattress room, and don't supply her the significant. enable her sleep on the instructor till she decides to start assisting with the homestead. Or touch her pediatrician or a police officer for concepts.
