Abstract

The Israeli legislation distinguishes between two groups of delinquents: juvenile delinquents (up to 16 years old) and adult delinquents (more than 16 years old). The author shows the confusion in the approach of the Court and the police towards 17—18 years old delinquents, who are treated sometimes like juvenile delinquents, and on other times like adult delinquents. He calls for raising the age limit of juvenile delinquents to 18 years, and defining a middle group of young adult delinquents — the age group of 18—19 years.
