Juvenile Delinquency in Windham, VT
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Windham County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Vermont often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 159 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Windham County. Of that total, 16% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 25 court cases. Another 84% were dependency cases that accounted for 134 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Windham County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Windham County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
