Juvenile Delinquency in Coosa, AL

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Coosa County, juvenile delinquency issues are on the rise. There are many reasons for the rise in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Alabama often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of crimes, and other family matters.

In 2017, a total of 30 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Coosa County. Of that total, 83% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 25 court cases. Another 17% were dependency cases that accounted for 5 of the juvenile cases.

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