Offenses by Minors

Despite their youth, most kids are old enough to get into trouble with the law. In fact, lots partake in activities that are illegal precisely because of the offender's age—take alcohol possession, for example. Most youngsters get the benefit of juvenile court for their misdeeds. But some, like those caught with alcohol who are old enough to be adults but too young to drink,  have to deal with the adult system. (Also see  When Juveniles Are Tried in Adult Criminal Court.)
