Juvenile Delinquency in Guernsey, OH
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Guernsey 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 399 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Guernsey County. Of that total, 52% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 207 court cases. Another 44% were dependency cases that accounted for 177 of the juvenile cases.
