Juvenile Delinquency in Washtenaw, MI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Washtenaw 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.
