Juvenile Delinquency in Newaygo, MI

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Newaygo 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 161 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Newaygo County. Of that total, 70% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 113 court cases. Another 30% were dependency cases that accounted for 48 of the juvenile cases.

A lot of counties, including, Newaygo County, are focusing on family therapy and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Newaygo County juvenile delinquency numbers will show whether or not this approach is working.
