Juvenile Delinquency in Williams, OH

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Williams 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 280 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Williams County. Of that total, 74% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 207 court cases. Another 26% were dependency cases that accounted for 73 of the juvenile cases.

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