Juvenile Delinquency in Pope, AR
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Pope 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 231 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Pope County. Of that total, 41% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 94 court cases. Another 31% were dependency cases that accounted for 71 of the juvenile cases.
