C. The provisions of this Code do not apply to, or govern the construction of and punishment for any offense committed prior to February 28, 1990, or to the construction and application of any defense to a prosecution for such an offense.

4. To differentiate on reasonable grounds between serious and minor offenses, and to prescribe proportionate penalties for each.

B. The provisions of this chapter shall be construed according to the fair import of their terms and when the language is susceptible of differing constructions it shall be interpreted to further the general purposes stated in this chapter. (Ord. 90-1029 § 2)

Children under the age of eight years are incapable of committing a crime. Children of eight and under twelve years of age are presumed to be incapable of committing a crime, but this presumption may be removed by proof that they have sufficient capacity to understand the act or neglect, and to know that it was wrong. Whenever in legal proceedings it becomes necessary to determine the age of a child, he or she may be produced for inspection, to enable the court or jury to determine the age thereby; and the court may also direct his or her examination by one or more physicians, whose opinion shall be competent evidence upon the question of his or her age. (Ord. 90-1029 § 4)
