Juvenile Delinquency in Tioga, PA
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Tioga 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 103 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Tioga County. Of that total, 42% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 43 court cases. Another 50% were dependency cases that accounted for 51 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Tioga County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Tioga County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
