To youth prison, yes if there is proper social workers and a good guidance to "normal" life. Never to adult prison.

Depending on the seriousness of the crime and with proper rehabilitation that 15 yr old would still have a chance at reneging back into society, life behind bars is no real solution for a child

I very rarely could see it being appropriate.

In general, I'd say no.

I believe there are situations that merit such a punishment.
