Juvenile Delinquency in Barbour, WV

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

In 2017, a total of 121 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Barbour County. Of that total, 9% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 11 court cases. Another 91% were dependency cases that accounted for 110 of the juvenile cases.

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