§ 12.9 (A)

(A) In General: A Juvenile Sentence Does Not Constitute a Sentence for Immigration Purposes. Juvenile incarceration does not constitute a “sentence to confinement” for immigration purposes. Certain adverse immigration consequences of criminal convictions depend upon a sentence or potential sentence of a certain length. However, each of these must flow from a conviction. Since a juvenile adjudication does not constitute a conviction, the length of incarceration flowing from a juvenile court disposition will not trigger any adverse immigration consequences. See § 12.21, infra.
