Juvenile Delinquency in Hillsdale, MI

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Hillsdale 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 267 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Hillsdale County. Of that total, 79% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 212 court cases. Another 21% were dependency cases that accounted for 55 of the juvenile cases.

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