Juvenile Delinquency in Gilmer, WV

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

In 2017, a total of 29 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Gilmer County. Of that total, 28% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 8 court cases. Another 72% were dependency cases that accounted for 21 of the juvenile cases.

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