The Act mandates that a convicted felon under age seventeen who is sentenced as an adult be committed to the Division of Youth Services of the Department of Human Resources until he or she reaches age eighteen whereupon transfer of responsibility for the inmate is made to the Department of Corrections. The remainder of the original sentence is then served under the aegis of the Department of Corrections. July 1, 1987
