Juvenile Delinquency in Cheatham, TN

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Cheatham 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.

In 2016, a total of 348 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Cheatham County. Of that total, 44% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 154 court cases. Another 13% were dependency cases that accounted for 45 of the juvenile cases.

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