Juvenile Delinquency in Walker, GA
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Walker 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 313 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Walker County. Of that total, 40% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 126 court cases. Another 27% were dependency cases that accounted for 84 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Walker County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Walker County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
