Juvenile Delinquency in Cass, MO
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Cass County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Missouri often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 840 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Cass County. Of that total, 38% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 319 court cases. Another 31% were dependency cases that accounted for 260 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Cass County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Cass County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
