Juvenile Delinquency in Lincoln, NE

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Lincoln 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 300 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Lincoln County. Of that total, 48% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 144 court cases. Another 40% were dependency cases that accounted for 120 of the juvenile cases.

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