Juvenile Delinquency in Barry, MI

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Barry 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 226 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Barry County. Of that total, 72% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 162 court cases. Another 28% were dependency cases that accounted for 64 of the juvenile cases.

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