Juvenile Delinquency in Pike, OH

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Pike 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 128 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Pike County. Of that total, 43% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 55 court cases. Another 38% were dependency cases that accounted for 48 of the juvenile cases.

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