Oakley last choice for Madison County officials to send junior offenders
WITH JUVENILE crimes up in Madison County last year and no juvenile detention center in the county, few options exist for holding and rehabilitating troubled youth.
One option is the Oakley Youth Development Center, formerly known as “training school,” near Raymond.
Oakley will take juveniles from throughout the state who have been adjudicated for three misdemeanors or one felony.
However, according to metro-area officials, Oakley is the last place they’ll send teens who are tried as juveniles.
