Juvenile Delinquency in Champaign, OH
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Champaign 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 761 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Champaign County. Of that total, 46% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 353 court cases. Another 11% were dependency cases that accounted for 80 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Champaign County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Champaign County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
