Juvenile Delinquent

The children normally below 18 years of age found guilty of commiting a crime and violated the law. Since the US states consider the crime by minors a bit lightly due to their lack of responsibility, some states in US have reduced the age to 14 years to punish the the juvenile as an adult for the crime.
