Juvenile Delinquency in Westmoreland, PA

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Westmoreland 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 802 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Westmoreland County. Of that total, 76% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 609 court cases. Another 21% were dependency cases that accounted for 165 of the juvenile cases.

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