Juvenile Delinquency in Jackson, NC

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

Of that total, 68% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 65 court cases. Another 0% were dependency cases that accounted for 0 of the juvenile cases.

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