Juvenile Delinquency in Montcalm, MI

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Montcalm 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.

Of that total, 79% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 187 court cases. Another 21% were dependency cases that accounted for 51 of the juvenile cases.
