Juvenile Delinquency in White, IN

Unfortunately, in many areas of the White County, juvenile delinquency issues are on the rise. There are many reasons for the rise in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Indiana often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of crimes, and other family matters.

In 2017, a total of 135 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of White County. Of that total, 29% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 39 court cases. Another 71% were dependency cases that accounted for 96 of the juvenile cases.

A lot of counties, including, White County, are focusing on family therapy and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future White County juvenile delinquency numbers will show whether or not this approach is working.
