Juvenile Delinquency in Genesee, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Genesee County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Michigan often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 1377 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Genesee County. Of that total, 67% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 919 court cases. Another 33% were dependency cases that accounted for 458 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Genesee County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Genesee County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
