to commit a crime or do something morally wrong, be responsible for something wrong, carry out, pull off, execute, perform, effect

Example

In 2011, over 30% of arrests for violent crime were among adolescents and young adults aged 10 to 24 years. This is a critical time period in an individual’s life, as many behavioral patterns are established during this developmental phase. Perpetration of violent crime at this age may begin a life-long cycle of involvement in the criminal justice system. Additionally, individuals who perpetrate crime often become victims themselves.
