Juvenile crimes are illegal activities that are committed by minors who are below the age of 18 years old. Juvenile charges are treated much differently than adult charges and are handled by the Juvenile Division of the Circuit Court. There is a separate set of rules and procedures for juvenile charges and juvenile sentencing.
