Juvenile Delinquency in Boone, WV

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

In 2017, a total of 424 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Boone County. Of that total, 13% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 55 court cases. Another 37% were dependency cases that accounted for 158 of the juvenile cases.

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