Juvenile Delinquency in Sheboygan, WI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Sheboygan 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 362 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Sheboygan County. Of that total, 54% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 194 court cases. Another 30% were dependency cases that accounted for 107 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Sheboygan County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Sheboygan County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
