Juvenile Delinquency in Dunklin, MO

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Dunklin 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.

Of that total, 15% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 86 court cases. Another 61% were dependency cases that accounted for 342 of the juvenile cases.

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