Adolescents Motivated or Forced 2 Are adolescents motivated or forced to commit delinquent crimes? This is the question that haunts the juvenile criminal justice system. Are adolescents motivated to commit delinquent crimes? What are the rewards to these crimes? Do they deal with other peers pressuring them to do the crimes? Do they know the punishment to the crime they are committing? Or, are they being forced to commit the delinquent crimes because of their body’s chemistry? Does their mind have the capabilities to understand crime and punishment? Is the adolescent mature enough to understand what they are doing? These are all questions that I am going to answer throughout this essay. I will then give my opinion on whether adolescents motivated or forced to commit delinquent crimes. In addition, I will support my opinion with two theories of individual delinquency. To answer the questions that I have listed above one must look at each and every case on an individual level. When doing this you will realize that every case is different and unique. Some cases will have some reasons that are similar on why the adolescent committed that crime.
