Juvenile Delinquency in Pike, MO

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Pike 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 79 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Pike County. Of that total, 38% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 30 court cases. Another 33% were dependency cases that accounted for 26 of the juvenile cases.

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