Juvenile Delinquency in Blair, PA

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

In 2017, a total of 427 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Blair County. Of that total, 69% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 294 court cases. Another 31% were dependency cases that accounted for 133 of the juvenile cases.

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