Juvenile Delinquency in Cross, AR
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Cross County, juvenile delinquency issues are on the rise. There are many reasons for the rise in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Arkansas often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of crimes, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 113 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Cross County. Of that total, 63% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 71 court cases. Another 22% were dependency cases that accounted for 25 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Cross County, are focusing on family therapy and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Cross County juvenile delinquency numbers will show whether or not this approach is working.
