Juvenile Delinquency in Oceana, MI

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Oceana 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 90 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Oceana County. Of that total, 77% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 69 court cases. Another 23% were dependency cases that accounted for 21 of the juvenile cases.

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