I need some synonyms of juvenile delinquency in my writing, but I don't know which one is idiomatic: adolescent/teenager/teenaged crimes(offences)?

Thank you.

Thank you.

The word "hooligan" came to my mind as a synonym for juvenile delinquency. I'm sure there are others.

Thank you for your reply, but hooligan is used to describe persons.

I'd say that hooligan and hooliganism cover a wider age range than just teens.

@JTT,
At least around here and in England it does.

I don't think hooligans are particularly juvenile:

'Youth crime' is an expression commonly heard. The perpetrators of these youth crimes are generally referred to as 'juvenile offenders.'
