How old was Arthur Radley in To Kill a Mockingbird?

Boo's age is never specifically mentioned by Harper Lee, but we can make an assumption. From the description of the trouble that Boo got into with his friends - the trouble that caused him to spend some time in the county jail - we can assume that Boo was a teenager at the time. Lee says after this that "he was not seen for fifteen years." This is because Boo's father, a devoutly and strictly religious man, kept Boo locked up in the house. Add 16 to 15 and you get 31. Hope this helps......
