The crimes that juveniles commit are the same as those that adults commit. From underage Drunk Driving to murder, the only difference in the commission of these crimes is the age of the defendant.
Depending on the crime, the juvenile may establish a juvenile criminal record, which means the record will be sealed when they turn 18. If they are tried as an adult because of the severity of their crime and their age when they committed it, the record could follow them throughout the rest of their life. This could cause them difficulty finding a place to live, finding meaningful employment, and even going to college.
