Juvenile Delinquency in Sauk, WI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Sauk 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 687 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Sauk County. Of that total, 18% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 124 court cases. Another 5% were dependency cases that accounted for 31 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Sauk County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Sauk County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
