Juvenile Delinquency in Sullivan, NH

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Sullivan County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in New Hampshire often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.

In 2008, a total of 364 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Sullivan County. Of that total, 59% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 215 court cases. Another 31% were dependency cases that accounted for 112 of the juvenile cases.

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