Juvenile Delinquency in Lewis, NY

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

Of that total, 100% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 12 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.
