Juvenile Delinquency in York, PA

Unfortunately, in many areas of the York 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 1789 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of York County. Of that total, 77% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 1378 court cases. Another 23% were dependency cases that accounted for 411 of the juvenile cases.

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