    Typically a youthful offender will receive a much lighter sentence...if any...than an adult offender. That's all. If this is your first offense, it's very unlikely that you'll get any jail time. More likely you'll have probation or community service.

    That status means you can maybe get rehabilitation or probation instead of jail. It also means the record may be sealed once you turn 21, if you decide to behave yourself.

    Take this as an opportunity to learn what you need to do to live a good, stable life and consider yourself lucky that you live in a state that has this youthful offender status.
