Juvenile Delinquency in Marion, AR

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Marion 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 79 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Marion County. Of that total, 49% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 39 court cases. Another 51% were dependency cases that accounted for 40 of the juvenile cases.

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