Juvenile Delinquency in Norfolk, MA

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

In 2017, a total of 847 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Norfolk County. Of that total, 53% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 447 court cases. Another 15% were dependency cases that accounted for 128 of the juvenile cases.

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