Juvenile Delinquency in Laramie, WY
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Laramie 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 247 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Laramie County. Of that total, 44% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 109 court cases. Another 40% were dependency cases that accounted for 100 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Laramie County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Laramie County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
