Juvenile Delinquency in Allegheny, PA

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Allegheny County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Pennsylvania often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.

In 2017, a total of 83 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Allegheny County. Of that total, 2% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 2 court cases. Another 1% were dependency cases that accounted for 1 of the juvenile cases.

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