Juvenile Delinquency in Marinette, WI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Marinette 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 94 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Marinette County. Of that total, 22% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 21 court cases. Another 52% were dependency cases that accounted for 49 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Marinette County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Marinette County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
