What are the Most Common Crimes Committed by Juveniles?

The importance of understanding the crimes committed by Juveniles for juvenile delinquency attorneys – often but not always with their parents as the main client – is to accurately define juvenile delinquency.

This will save the best time for the professional lawyer to understand the case and move forward in the interests of their client. This clarity in the definition would then best assess the seriousness of the crime, the motivation for the crime, and the prosecution as well as the judge working for the appropriate punishment.

Juvenile offenses are crimes that are committed by children under 18 years of age. It may seem these days of internet, smartphones, and every type of app, this age is getting reduced due to the differential treatment of an “adult” and a “teen”

Throughout history, in every culture, the segregation of crimes committed up to the age of the offender takes place in the hope that youth under 18 can fix their ways due to their immature development and appropriate punishment.

The motivation for crime is seen as motivation. This immaturity is directly related to age.

After 18, Asha is abandoned. The former juvenile delinquent is now seen as an adult, judged, and punished as an adult. In practice, there is less chance of redemption.

Looking deeper into the typology of crimes committed by juveniles, some specific differences can be drawn:

1) The juvenile crime of passion or youth overhang:

2) Consciously committed to juvenile crimes, with full knowledge beforehand;

3) Juvenile offenses committed under the command or service of an adult offender;

4) Juvenile crimes of passion are unlikely to be repeated;

5) Juvenile delinquency with repeated crime patterns.

For example, the crime of theft. A young person may covet a bag or jacket or bicycle or phone that they cannot afford. It is a crime of theft apart from those youths who go out to steal money or valuables time or time again. And yet aside from the controlled, conscious, and dangerous theft of a juvenile in a house or vault or shop to steal some high-value items on the instructions of a master criminal or criminal gang.

If the criminal justice system only focuses on the age of the offender with age above or below 18, then these differences disappear. Hence proper policing, damage recovery, or appropriate punishment.

The classic offenses of juveniles, breaking laws small and large, have been individually focused on doing great harm with little power.

These crimes generally fall into these categories due to the range of strengths of young people:
  • To steal
  • Anger against people or violence from place to place;
  • Including group violence, bullying or “honor violence”;
  • Destruction of property;
  • Illegal use and smuggling of drugs or alcohol;
  • “Violence” under the effects of drugs or alcohol;
  • Vehicle accidents under the influence of the above violation, including up to and driving accident;
  • Rape;
  • Sex with other teenagers;
  • Prostitution, both men and women.

In addition to these classic types of crime committed by juveniles, new categories of crime have emerged in the form of the Internet and computer technology empowers physically vulnerable adolescents with the same strength as adults. The juvenile technical offender may be stronger than the criminal who relies on muscle power and guns.

Cybercrime is the name for these “new-gen” crimes, where statute statutes need to be updated to match the exponential growth of computing power.


  1. Data hacking;
  2. Computer pornography;
  3. ATM through theft of money and password theft from online banking accounts
  4. Online prostitution, both men and women;
  5. Theft of intellectual property;
  6. Reputed destruction via fake social media.
