Financial hardship doesn’t drive crime, at least not in McLeod County, according to County Attorney Mike Junge.
Junge presented his 2015 annual report to the County Board at its Tuesday, July 5, meeting.
“We tend to think of acts of crime as being done by people who are in financial straits,” Junge said. “That’s just not true.”
Most crimes seem to center on drugs, booze, alcohol and gambling, Junge said. “And it takes money to do those things.”
