Juvenile Delinquency in Conejos, CO
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Conejos County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Colorado often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 15 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Conejos County. Of that total, 67% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 10 court cases. Another 33% were dependency cases that accounted for 5 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Conejos County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Conejos County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
