Juveniles are defined as minors or those under the age of 17. In most cases juveniles are treated differently from adult offenders. Even though many juvenile offenses, such as shoplifting, receiving stolen property, assault, etc., are comparable to adult offenses, the penalties could often be more severe for juveniles.

There are separate courts, institutions, and rules governing the juvenile process; and generally the juvenile court system will make every effort to rehabilitate the child rather than choose incarceration. Only in extreme cases such as murder, kidnapping, arson and rape will a juvenile be tried as an adult in Harford &Cecil County, MD.
