Juvenile Delinquency in Worth, MO
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Worth 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 25 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Worth County. Of that total, 24% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 6 court cases. Another 48% were dependency cases that accounted for 12 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Worth County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Worth County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
