Juvenile Delinquency in Saunders, NE
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Saunders 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 49 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Saunders County. Of that total, 37% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 18 court cases. Another 63% were dependency cases that accounted for 31 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Saunders County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Saunders County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
