The article deals with the manifestations of personal immaturity in female juvenile offenders. The psychological conclusions of girls committing socially dangerous acts and underwent a comprehensive forensic psychological and psychiatric examination were analysed. The results of clinical diagnostics and expert assessment of the ability of minors to regulate arbitrarily their own activities are presented. The article describes the features of signs in girls with illegal behavior, typical for personal immaturity, and presents a comparison with a sample of male juvenile offenders. It was found that girls ' mental development delays are mainly partial in nature, and manifestations of personal immaturity are generally less pronounced compared to boys. In the study of the intellectual sphere, it was noted that girls ' intellectual deficits are less pronounced, observed mainly in combination with psychopathology of organic genesis.

Keywords: personal immaturity, gender specificity, dysontogenesis, underage accused, female children with illegal behavior.
