Juvenile Delinquency in Tyler, WV
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Tyler 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 31 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Tyler County. Of that total, 23% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 7 court cases. Another 39% were dependency cases that accounted for 12 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Tyler County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Tyler County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
