Thank you for the opportunity to help!

On the one hand, juvenile delinquency is "participating in illegal behavior by minors [1]." On the other hand,

status offense is " an action that is prohibited only to a certain class of people [2]." According to the Nuremberg Laws, during Nazi times, Jews were not allowed to marry non-Jew Germans.  Juvenile delinquency include status offenses, such as activities forbidden to minors, up to activities that would be considered criminal. In most legal system [1] minors have the right  to juvenile courts and and laws. In some cases,  it is possible to try them as adults. Juvenile status offenses may not be considered crimes if they are committed by adults [2].
