Juvenile Delinquency in Goshen, WY

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Goshen 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 39 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Goshen County. Of that total, 46% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 18 court cases. Another 38% were dependency cases that accounted for 15 of the juvenile cases.

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