Juvenile Delinquency in Monroe, WV

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Monroe 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 67 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Monroe County. Of that total, 15% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 10 court cases. Another 39% were dependency cases that accounted for 26 of the juvenile cases.

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