Juvenile Delinquency in Grant, WA

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

In 2017, a total of 798 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Grant County. Of that total, 69% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 553 court cases. Another 12% were dependency cases that accounted for 93 of the juvenile cases.

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