Juvenile Delinquency in Clare, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Clare County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Michigan often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 118 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Clare County. Of that total, 74% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 87 court cases. Another 26% were dependency cases that accounted for 31 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Clare County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Clare County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
