Juvenile Delinquency in Osceola, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Osceola 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 171 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Osceola County. Of that total, 95% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 163 court cases. Another 5% were dependency cases that accounted for 8 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Osceola County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Osceola County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
