4.5.3 Juveniles convicted
"Juveniles convicted" means the total number of Juvenile persons found guilty by any legal body authorized to pronounce a conviction under national criminal law, whether or not the conviction was later upheld. The total number of Juvenile persons convicted should also include those Juveniles convicted of serious special law offences but exclude those convicted of minor road traffic offences, misdemeanours and other petty offences.

[“Juvenile” is a minor or person who is of certain minimum age but still under the age of legal competence. The minority is determined according to what each country’s legislation establishes; however, a majority of countries establish that a person is no longer a minor after reaching the age of 18. Therefore, an individual charged with a crime who is between the minimum age established by the country’s legislation and (in most cases) 18, is considered a juvenile.]
