Juvenile Delinquency in Thurston, NE

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Thurston 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 20 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Thurston County. Of that total, 55% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 11 court cases. Another 45% were dependency cases that accounted for 9 of the juvenile cases.

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