Juvenile Delinquency in Antelope, NE
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Antelope County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Nebraska often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 33 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Antelope County. Of that total, 79% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 26 court cases. Another 21% were dependency cases that accounted for 7 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Antelope County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Antelope County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
