Juvenile Delinquency in Van Buren, MI

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Van Buren County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Michigan often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.

In 2017, a total of 416 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Van Buren County. Of that total, 85% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 355 court cases. Another 15% were dependency cases that accounted for 61 of the juvenile cases.

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