Juvenile Delinquency in Penobscot, ME

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Penobscot 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 221 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Penobscot County. Of that total, 51% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 113 court cases. Another 49% were dependency cases that accounted for 108 of the juvenile cases.

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