Juvenile Delinquency in Knox, MO

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Knox 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 72 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Knox County. Of that total, 21% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 15 court cases. Another 18% were dependency cases that accounted for 13 of the juvenile cases.

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