Juvenile Delinquency in Antrim, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Antrim County, juvenile delinquency issues are on the rise. There are many reasons for the rise in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Michigan often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of crimes, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 55 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Antrim County. Of that total, 80% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 44 court cases. Another 20% were dependency cases that accounted for 11 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Antrim County, are focusing on family therapy and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Antrim County juvenile delinquency numbers will show whether or not this approach is working.
