Juvenile Delinquency in Taylor, WV

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

In 2017, a total of 147 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Taylor County. Of that total, 13% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 19 court cases. Another 87% were dependency cases that accounted for 128 of the juvenile cases.

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