What is an incorrigible act?

An incorrigible juvenile commits an offense that would not be considered a crime if he or she were an adult and are often referred to as status offenses. Typically, incorrigible juveniles are juveniles who are habitually truant from school, have run away from home, or violated curfew. In addition, juveniles who refuse to obey the reasonable and proper direction of their parents or guardians can be considered incorrigible.
