Juvenile Delinquency in Dale, AL

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

In 2017, a total of 221 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Dale County. Of that total, 46% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 101 court cases. Another 11% were dependency cases that accounted for 25 of the juvenile cases.

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