Juvenile Delinquency in Skagit, WA
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Skagit County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Washington often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 760 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Skagit County. Of that total, 48% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 368 court cases. Another 9% were dependency cases that accounted for 68 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Skagit County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Skagit County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
