SB 6396 states that when a juvenile who is alleged or proven to have committed an offense (aka respondent) is transferred to adult criminal court and is sentenced to a term of confinement, the respondent shall be committed to the custody of the Department of Social and Health Services until the juvenile completes the ordered term of confinement or arrives at the age of 21 years, whereupon the juvenile shall be committed to the custody of the Department of Corrections.

Further, SB 6396 requires that if a child is anticipated to complete his or her sentence before turning 21 years, that he/she will have the same treatment, housing options, transfer, and access to program resources as any other child committed directly to that juvenile correctional facility or institution pursuant to RCW 13.40.
