Juvenile Delinquency in Utah, UT
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Utah County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Utah often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 634 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Utah County. Of that total, 0% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 2 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.
