Juvenile Delinquency in Richmond, VA

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Richmond County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Virginia often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.

Of that total, 71% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 12 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.

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