Juvenile Delinquency in Racine, WI

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Racine 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 735 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Racine County. Of that total, 59% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 434 court cases. Another 37% were dependency cases that accounted for 274 of the juvenile cases.

A lot of counties, including, Racine County, are focusing on family therapy and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Racine County juvenile delinquency numbers will show whether or not this approach is working.
