Juvenile Delinquency in Logan, WV

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Logan 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 112 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Logan County. Of that total, 20% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 22 court cases. Another 80% were dependency cases that accounted for 90 of the juvenile cases.

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