Juvenile Delinquency in Halifax, NC

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

In 2017, a total of 109 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Halifax County. Of that total, 100% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 109 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.

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