Juvenile Delinquency in Bayfield, WI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Bayfield County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Wisconsin often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 46 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Bayfield County. Of that total, 33% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 15 court cases. Another 48% were dependency cases that accounted for 22 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Bayfield County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Bayfield County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
