Juvenile Delinquency in Day, SD

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

In 2017, a total of 25 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Day County. Of that total, 44% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 11 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.

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