Juvenile Delinquency in Brown, OH
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Brown County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Ohio often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 394 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Brown County. Of that total, 55% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 216 court cases. Another 29% were dependency cases that accounted for 113 of the juvenile cases.
