The occurrence of crime is a part and parcel of the society. With the advent of the greater societal needs there has been an increase of economic demand. The industrial era that the world is witnessing since the industrial revolution has changed the dynamics of the world, with not only evolution in the industrial part of the world but also in the societal nature. What the world has witnessed during that era is not mere development of machines but the growth of a new social class popularly known as the working middle class. The gap that existed between upper section of the society and the lower section of the society kept on increasing, which led to economic upheavals within the groups of people. New ideologies emerged, the thinking pattern changed, the child of different ages has now been subjected to various types of studies. What emerged during this era was the existence of the delinquency of offences that were being conducted by the juvenile and young adults. This paper analyses the scope of juvenile delinquency and understand factors that leads to offences among young adults. It is not necessary that a child will only conduct delinquency because of peer and societal pressure but also factors which may be biological or genetic in nature and some other factors. It moves to the fact about the general trends of crime that are conducted by young adults and the link of substance abuse with that of juvenile delinquency. Most importantly the most vital factor of juvenile delinquency rather to rephrase the most important provision of juvenile delinquency lies in juvenile justice and juvenile justice theories. This paper to a certain extent has analysed how the Justice system of the juvenile system is and it ought to be.
