Juvenile Delinquency in Lewis, MO

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Lewis 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 87 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Lewis County. Of that total, 14% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 12 court cases. Another 45% were dependency cases that accounted for 39 of the juvenile cases.

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