Juvenile Delinquency in Morgan, MO
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Morgan 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 57 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Morgan County. Of that total, 35% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 20 court cases. Another 33% were dependency cases that accounted for 19 of the juvenile cases.
