Nepilnamečių smurtas Lietuvoje: raiška, priežastys ir prevencija.
In the article agression and auto-agression of juveniles are considered. The most serious criminal forms of agression against the person are premeditated murders and attempts, intentional serious bodily injures and rapes and attempts. Criminal responsibility for these serious crimes starts already at 14 years age. Within the entire post-war period prior to 1988, juveniles commited on average five premeditated murders (including attempts) each year, intentional serious bodily injures – nine or eight and less and a quarter of the total number of registered rapes in Lithuania. In general, the violent crimes accounted for 1,5 percent of juvenile delinquency. Within the past decade, juveniles commited annually on average 21 premeditated murders (four times more than within the previous period); 14 intentional serious bodily injures (1,5 times more than within the previous period) and 26 rapes (that is approximately the same number or less than the average number within the previous period). Within the past eleven-year period (from 1989 till 1999) the number of these who committed suicide was more than double number of murdered children and juveniles under the age of 20 years.
