Juvenile Delinquency in Dakota, NE
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Dakota 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 67 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Dakota County. Of that total, 90% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 60 court cases. Another 10% were dependency cases that accounted for 7 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Dakota County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Dakota County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
