Juvenile Delinquency in Metcalfe, KY

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Metcalfe County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Kentucky often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.

In 1997, a total of 45 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Metcalfe County. Of that total, 62% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 28 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.
