Juvenile Delinquency in Muskingum, OH

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Muskingum 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 1009 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Muskingum County. Of that total, 38% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 383 court cases. Another 24% were dependency cases that accounted for 242 of the juvenile cases.

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