Juvenile Delinquency in Cooper, MO

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

In 2017, a total of 314 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Cooper County. Of that total, 44% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 138 court cases. Another 7% were dependency cases that accounted for 21 of the juvenile cases.

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