Juvenile Delinquency in Fond Du Lac, WI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Fond Du Lac County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Wisconsin often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 359 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Fond Du Lac County. Of that total, 45% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 160 court cases. Another 39% were dependency cases that accounted for 139 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Fond Du Lac County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Fond Du Lac County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
