Juvenile Delinquency in Kearney, NE

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Kearney 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 25 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Kearney County. Of that total, 60% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 15 court cases. Another 20% were dependency cases that accounted for 5 of the juvenile cases.

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