Juvenile Delinquency in Snyder, PA

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Snyder 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 85 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Snyder County. Of that total, 74% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 63 court cases. Another 26% were dependency cases that accounted for 22 of the juvenile cases.

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