Juvenile Delinquency in Orange, VT
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Orange County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Vermont often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 55 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Orange County. Of that total, 44% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 24 court cases. Another 47% were dependency cases that accounted for 26 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Orange County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Orange County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
