Juvenile Delinquency in Manitowoc, WI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Manitowoc County, juvenile delinquency issues are on the rise. There are many reasons for the rise in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Wisconsin often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of crimes, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 250 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Manitowoc County. Of that total, 67% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 168 court cases. Another 27% were dependency cases that accounted for 68 of the juvenile cases.
