Juvenile Delinquency in Wayne, PA

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Wayne 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 51 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Wayne County. Of that total, 51% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 26 court cases. Another 49% were dependency cases that accounted for 25 of the juvenile cases.

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