Juvenile Delinquency in Emmet, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Emmet 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 89 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Emmet County. Of that total, 84% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 75 court cases. Another 16% were dependency cases that accounted for 14 of the juvenile cases.
