Juvenile Delinquency in Douglas, WI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Douglas 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 328 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Douglas County. Of that total, 35% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 114 court cases. Another 24% were dependency cases that accounted for 80 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Douglas County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Douglas County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
