Just as there is a list of the worst parents of 2017, there is also a list of the worst teenagers of 2017. Usually, juvenile courts adjudicate crimes committed by children or teens, taking into account the idea of helping teens understand the gravity of their crimes, while at the same time delivering a punishment that will not cripple the offender for the rest of his or her life.
