Juvenile Delinquency in Huron, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Huron 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 101 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Huron County. Of that total, 82% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 83 court cases. Another 18% were dependency cases that accounted for 18 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Huron County, are focusing on family therapy and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Huron County juvenile delinquency numbers will show whether or not this approach is working.
