Juvenile Delinquency in Yell, AR
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Yell County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Arkansas often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 75 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Yell County. Of that total, 33% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 25 court cases. Another 49% were dependency cases that accounted for 37 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Yell County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Yell County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
