Juvenile Delinquency in Perry, MO

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Perry 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 247 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Perry County. Of that total, 17% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 41 court cases. Another 37% were dependency cases that accounted for 91 of the juvenile cases.

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