The research presented here investigates the nuanced connection between juvenile criminal behavior and the reliability of eyewitness evidence. Teenagers may commit crimes and the veracity of eyewitness reports involving them are both influenced by adolescence, a pivotal developmental stage defined by profound cognitive, emotional, and social changes. This essay examines the causes of juvenile criminal behavior, the difficulties in getting reliable eyewitness testimony, and the effects of these problems on the criminal justice system. To accomplish this, the study makes use of case studies, empirical research, and a thorough assessment of the body of prior literature to present a full grasp of the subject. The article also makes suggestions that would improve eyewitness testimony’s precision in cases involving juvenile offenders.
