Juvenile Delinquency in Carter, TN

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

In 2016, a total of 497 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Carter County. Of that total, 30% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 148 court cases. Another 44% were dependency cases that accounted for 219 of the juvenile cases.

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