Juvenile Delinquency in Fayette, OH

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

In 2017, a total of 442 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Fayette County. Of that total, 76% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 338 court cases. Another 8% were dependency cases that accounted for 35 of the juvenile cases.

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