Juvenile Delinquency in Reynolds, MO
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Reynolds 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 62 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Reynolds County. Of that total, 8% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 5 court cases. Another 68% were dependency cases that accounted for 42 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Reynolds County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Reynolds County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
