Juvenile Delinquency in Newton, GA

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

In 2017, a total of 717 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Newton County. Of that total, 60% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 432 court cases. Another 14% were dependency cases that accounted for 99 of the juvenile cases.

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