Juvenile Delinquency in Muskegon, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Muskegon 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 1150 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Muskegon County. Of that total, 83% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 959 court cases. Another 17% were dependency cases that accounted for 191 of the juvenile cases.
