Juvenile Delinquency in Waushara, WI
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Waushara 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 96 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Waushara County. Of that total, 65% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 62 court cases. Another 9% were dependency cases that accounted for 9 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Waushara County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Waushara County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
