Juvenile Delinquency in Lenawee, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Lenawee 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 388 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Lenawee County. Of that total, 85% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 329 court cases. Another 15% were dependency cases that accounted for 59 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Lenawee County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Lenawee County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
