Juveniles

The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that there were approximately 73.8 million youth under the age of 18 in the United States in 2012.[1] State statutes define which youth are in the original jurisdiction of the juvenile court, and it varies from state to state; the upper age limit for this jurisdiction ranges from 15 to 17.[2] In 2010, courts with juvenile jurisdiction disposed more than 1.3 million delinquency cases.[3]
