Juvenile Delinquency in Macon, MO

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Macon 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 251 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Macon County. Of that total, 23% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 58 court cases. Another 37% were dependency cases that accounted for 94 of the juvenile cases.

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