F.S. 985.494
985.494 Commitment programs for juvenile felony offenders.
(1) Notwithstanding any other law and regardless of the child’s age, a child who is adjudicated delinquent, or for whom adjudication is withheld, for an act that would be a felony if committed by an adult, shall be committed to:
(a) A program for serious or habitual juvenile offenders under s. 985.47 or an intensive residential treatment program for offenders less than 13 years of age under s. 985.483, if the child has participated in an early delinquency intervention program and has completed a sheriff’s training and respect program.
(b) A maximum-risk residential program, if the child has participated in an early delinquency intervention program, has completed a sheriff’s training and respect program, and has completed a program for serious or habitual juvenile offenders or an intensive residential treatment program for offenders less than 13 years of age. The commitment of a child to a maximum-risk residential program must be for an indeterminate period, but may not exceed the maximum term of imprisonment that an adult may serve for the same offense.
(2) In committing a child to the appropriate program, the court may consider an equivalent program of similar intensity as being comparable to a program required under subsection (1).
