Juvenile Delinquency in Knox, ME

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

In 2017, a total of 55 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Knox County. Of that total, 67% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 37 court cases. Another 33% were dependency cases that accounted for 18 of the juvenile cases.

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