Juvenile Delinquency in Franklin, OH

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

In 2017, a total of 9 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Franklin County. Of that total, 44% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 4 court cases. Another 33% were dependency cases that accounted for 3 of the juvenile cases.

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