Juvenile Delinquency in Clearfield, PA

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Clearfield 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 154 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Clearfield County. Of that total, 28% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 43 court cases. Another 56% were dependency cases that accounted for 86 of the juvenile cases.

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