Juvenile Delinquency in Harrison, OH

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Harrison 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 130 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Harrison County. Of that total, 44% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 57 court cases. Another 48% were dependency cases that accounted for 62 of the juvenile cases.

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