Juvenile Delinquency in Iosco, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Iosco 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 82 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Iosco County. Of that total, 67% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 55 court cases. Another 33% were dependency cases that accounted for 27 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Iosco County, are focusing on family therapy and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Iosco County juvenile delinquency numbers will show whether or not this approach is working.
