Juvenile Delinquency in Grafton, NH
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Grafton County, juvenile delinquency issues are on the rise. There are many reasons for the rise in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in New Hampshire often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of crimes, and other family matters.
In 2008, a total of 369 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Grafton County. Of that total, 70% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 260 court cases. Another 18% were dependency cases that accounted for 65 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Grafton County, are focusing on family therapy and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Grafton County juvenile delinquency numbers will show whether or not this approach is working.
