Juvenile Delinquency in Conecuh, AL
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Conecuh County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Alabama often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.
In 2017, a total of 79 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Conecuh County. Of that total, 33% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 26 court cases. Another 67% were dependency cases that accounted for 53 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Conecuh County, are focusing on family health and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Conecuh County juvenile delinquency statistics will show whether or not this approach is working.
