Juvenile Delinquency in Cedar, MO

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

In 2017, a total of 135 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Cedar County. Of that total, 27% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 36 court cases. Another 37% were dependency cases that accounted for 50 of the juvenile cases.

A lot of counties, including, Cedar County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Cedar County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
