Juvenile Delinquency in Gordon, GA

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Gordon 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.

In 2017, a total of 237 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Gordon County. Of that total, 28% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 66 court cases. Another 53% were dependency cases that accounted for 126 of the juvenile cases.

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