Juvenile Delinquency in Platte, MO

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Platte 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 299 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Platte County. Of that total, 66% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 198 court cases. Another 7% were dependency cases that accounted for 21 of the juvenile cases.

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