Juvenile crimes: Nashville teen arrested for alleged carjacking

Teenagers in Tennessee often socialize with older teens aged 18 or over who are already considered to be young adults. In most instances, there are no problems with the associations.

Those 18 and over would be tried as adults, while minor teenagers would face charges for juvenile crimes. A teenager was recently arrested for suspected involvement in an alleged carjacking.
