Juvenile Delinquency in Cumberland, ME

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

In 2017, a total of 534 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Cumberland County. Of that total, 75% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 401 court cases. Another 25% were dependency cases that accounted for 133 of the juvenile cases.

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