Juvenile Delinquency in Seward, NE
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Seward 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 59 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Seward County. Of that total, 83% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 49 court cases. Another 17% were dependency cases that accounted for 10 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Seward County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Seward County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
