Juvenile Delinquency in Armstrong, PA

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

In 2017, a total of 169 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Armstrong County. Of that total, 54% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 92 court cases. Another 41% were dependency cases that accounted for 69 of the juvenile cases.

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