Typically, a minor less than 7 years old will not be punished by law, but the parents might have to pay some consequences. In most of the States in America, Juvenile delinquents are often defined as children between the ages of 7 and 18 who have committed a criminal act. Among all the Juvenile delinquency cases, 70% were ordered probation. In America, the age-specific offenders and the relevant punishments are very complicated; in addition, each state has their own juvenile delinquency rules. Juvenile convictions can often be sealed or expunged easier than adult convictions.
