Juvenile Delinquency in Monroe, OH
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Monroe 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 86 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Monroe County. Of that total, 79% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 68 court cases. Another 6% were dependency cases that accounted for 5 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Monroe County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Monroe County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
