Juvenile Delinquency in Columbia, GA

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

Of that total, 53% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 269 court cases. Another 3% were dependency cases that accounted for 16 of the juvenile cases.

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