Juvenile Delinquency in Gage, NE
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Gage 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 177 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Gage County. Of that total, 43% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 76 court cases. Another 18% were dependency cases that accounted for 32 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Gage County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Gage County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
