Juvenile Delinquency in Gentry, MO

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Gentry 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 73 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Gentry County. Of that total, 18% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 13 court cases. Another 66% were dependency cases that accounted for 48 of the juvenile cases.

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