Understanding Juvenile Crimes

Juvenile crimes refer to offenses committed by individuals who are under the age of 18. In New York, the juvenile justice system operates differently from the adult criminal justice system. It focuses on rehabilitation and the best interests of the young person, recognizing their potential for growth and change. The penalties for juvenile crimes aim to provide appropriate consequences while prioritizing opportunities for rehabilitation and reintegration into society.

Common Offenses Faced By Juveniles

Juvenile crimes can include a range of offenses, such as underage drinking, drug possession, theft, vandalism and assault. Each case is unique, and the circumstances surrounding the offense, as well as the juvenile’s background, are taken into consideration during the legal proceedings.
