Juvenile Delinquency in Beaufort, NC

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Beaufort County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in North Carolina often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.

Of that total, 96% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 107 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.

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