Juvenile Delinquency in Oxford, ME

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Oxford 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 85 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Oxford County. Of that total, 67% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 57 court cases. Another 33% were dependency cases that accounted for 28 of the juvenile cases.

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