9 South Yorkshire killers jailed when they were just teenagers who are still serving time

Their crimes shocked people across South Yorkshire.

Age is sadly no barrier when it comes to committing serious offences, as these cases involving South Yorkshire teenagers demonstrate.

In each of the cases included here, the defendants currently serving time were in their teens when they were brought to justice at Sheffield Crown Court.

The identity of some of the defendants on this list was initially protected by reporting restrictions due to them being under 18 when their cases reached court, only to be lifted at the request of the press by judges who believed it was in the public interest for them to be named.
