Juvenile Delinquency in White, IL

Unfortunately, in many areas of the White County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Illinois often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.

In 2017, a total of 114 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of White County. Of that total, 86% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 98 court cases. Another 14% were dependency cases that accounted for 16 of the juvenile cases.

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