Juvenile Crimes

The juvenile criminal justice system was founded upon the premise that young people (minors under the age of 18) are fundamentally different than adults, both in terms of level of responsibility and potential for rehabilitation. For these reasons, the juvenile criminal justice system seeks to rehabilitate rather than punish young criminal offenders in the hopes that they will go on to have productive lives that are free of crime, both for their own benefit and for the benefit of the community.

The majority of cases in the juvenile court system involve young people between 10 and 18 years of age. Juvenile crimes can include DUI, drug crimes, robbery, rape, murder, manslaughter, and virtually any other crime that can be committed by an adult.

When a juvenile under the age of 18 commits a crime they may be punished accordingly under juvenile law. The punishments for juveniles are different than those given to adults because the goal of the juvenile system is to rehabilitate juveniles rather than simply punishing them. This means that instead of being sentenced to jail like an adult would for committing the same crime, the juvenile may be ordered into juvenile detention or home arrest under strict probation.
