Juvenile Delinquency in Teton, WY
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Teton 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 14 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Teton County. Of that total, 57% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 8 court cases. Another 43% were dependency cases that accounted for 6 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Teton County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Teton County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
