Juvenile Delinquency in Mineral, WV

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Mineral 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 87 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Mineral County. Of that total, 48% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 42 court cases. Another 32% were dependency cases that accounted for 28 of the juvenile cases.

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