Juvenile Delinquency in Tucker, WV

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Tucker 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 11 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Tucker County. Of that total, 55% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 6 court cases. Another 45% were dependency cases that accounted for 5 of the juvenile cases.

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