CHARGES AGAINST PERSONS PLACED ON PROBATION The table which follows shows the reported charges against all adults placed on probation during the past year:
Misdemeanors and Lesser Offenses
3.1 1,365 100.0 12,986
It is evident that the leading offense for which men are placed on probation is that of non-support. Twenty-seven per cent. of all cases were for this offense. Putting it another way, probation is found to be most applicable in cases where men are brought to court for failure to live up to their family obligations. The number and percentage of non-support cases increased somewhat as compared with the preceding year.
Stealing in its various degrees is the second greatest cause for the use of probation among adults, considering petit larceny, grand larceny and burglary as grades of the same offense. Offenses against property bring more persons into court each year than any other causes and it is natural that a large number of these, in the majority of cases first offenders, should be given a chance to redeem themselves on probation.
The next cause for the use of probation is disorderly conduct followed by public intoxication. These are more or less related offenses. The number of persons placed on probation for public intoxication, as compared with those placed in 1914, decreased from 15.4 per cent. of all cases to 11.3 per cent.
If this means that fewer confirmed drunkards are being treated under probation and more by institutional care, these figures are encouraging. The subject of the treatment of persons addicted to the use of drink and drugs is discussed further on in this report.
The leading charge in the cases of women placed on probation is prostitution. The number and percentage of cases placed for this offense is, however, considerably less than it was several years ago.
The following table shows the charges in cases of children placed on probation. CLASSIFICATION OF CHARGES IN THE CASES OF CHILDREN PLACED
