Juvenile Delinquency in Conway, AR
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Conway County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Arkansas often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 120 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Conway County.
