Juvenile Delinquency in Kennebec, ME

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Kennebec 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 268 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Kennebec County. Of that total, 64% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 171 court cases. Another 36% were dependency cases that accounted for 97 of the juvenile cases.

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