Juvenile Delinquency in Taylor, WI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Taylor 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 79 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Taylor County. Of that total, 27% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 21 court cases. Another 32% were dependency cases that accounted for 25 of the juvenile cases.
