Juvenile Delinquency in Big Horn, WY
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Big Horn County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Wyoming often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 18 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Big Horn County. Of that total, 61% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 11 court cases. Another 39% were dependency cases that accounted for 7 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Big Horn County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Big Horn County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
