Juvenile Delinquency in Washakie, WY
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Washakie County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Wyoming often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 23 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Washakie County.
