When a juvenile, one who is under the age of 18, does not exercise better judgment and commits a crime, they are generally tried in juvenile court. When the crime is considered a serious offense, such as a homicide, depending upon the circumstances and evidence against them, the prosecuting attorney's office may determine that the juvenile should be tried as an adult.
The youth of today are under a great deal of peer pressure, especially in a culture in which street credibility (street cred.) is a prevalent aspect of their society. In an effort to "fit in", good kids sometimes make mistakes in judgment which involve acts which are criminal in nature. When a juvenile is arrested for a criminal act, it does not have to destroy their opportunity to learn from their mistake and become productive members of society.
