Juvenile Delinquency in Greene, MO

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Greene 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 1043 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Greene County. Of that total, 64% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 663 court cases. Another 14% were dependency cases that accounted for 145 of the juvenile cases.

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