Delinquent means one who fails to do that which is required by law or by duty when such failure is minor in nature.

A delinquent is often used to refer to a juvenile who commits a minor criminal act—juvenile delinquents.

Juvenile delinquency refers to criminal acts performed by juveniles. It is an important social issue because juveniles are capable of committing serious crimes, but most legal systems prescribe specific procedures for dealing with juveniles.
