Juvenile Delinquency in Midland, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Midland 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 254 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Midland County. Of that total, 55% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 139 court cases. Another 45% were dependency cases that accounted for 115 of the juvenile cases.
