Delinquent

A delinquent is one who fails to do that which is required by law or by duty when such failure is minor in nature.

The term is often used to refer to a juvenile who commits a minor criminal act—juvenile delinquents.

In other cases, a delinquent is a person who fails to pay a debt or other financial obligation, like a mortgage. Failure to cure a delinquent payment can result in repossession or foreclosure.
