Juvenile Delinquency in Iron, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Iron 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 37 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Iron County. Of that total, 84% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 31 court cases. Another 16% were dependency cases that accounted for 6 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Iron County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Iron County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
