Juvenile Delinquency in Blount, TN

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

Of that total, 54% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 646 court cases. Another 24% were dependency cases that accounted for 295 of the juvenile cases.

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