Juvenile Delinquency in Adams, NE

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Adams County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Nebraska often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.

In 2017, a total of 235 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Adams County. Of that total, 63% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 148 court cases. Another 25% were dependency cases that accounted for 59 of the juvenile cases.

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