Juvenile Delinquency in Lee, AL

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Lee 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 472 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Lee County. Of that total, 47% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 222 court cases. Another 18% were dependency cases that accounted for 86 of the juvenile cases.

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