Juvenile Delinquency in Shelby, OH

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Shelby 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 442 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Shelby County. Of that total, 71% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 315 court cases. Another 12% were dependency cases that accounted for 53 of the juvenile cases.

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