Juvenile Delinquency in Juniata, PA

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Juniata 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 33 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Juniata County. Of that total, 76% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 25 court cases. Another 24% were dependency cases that accounted for 8 of the juvenile cases.

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