Juvenile Delinquency in Eagle, CO
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Eagle County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Colorado often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 45 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Eagle County. Of that total, 87% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 39 court cases. Another 13% were dependency cases that accounted for 6 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Eagle County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Eagle County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
