Juvenile Delinquency in Waupaca, WI

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Waupaca 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 276 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Waupaca County. Of that total, 52% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 144 court cases. Another 7% were dependency cases that accounted for 18 of the juvenile cases.

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