Juvenile Delinquency in Randolph, WV

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Randolph 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 431 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Randolph County. Of that total, 11% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 49 court cases. Another 23% were dependency cases that accounted for 99 of the juvenile cases.

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