Juvenile Delinquency in Chester, TN
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Chester County, juvenile delinquency offenses are on the rise. There are many reasons for the inflation in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Tennessee often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of charges, and other family matters.
In 2016, a total of 250 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Chester County. Of that total, 30% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 75 court cases. Another 20% were dependency cases that accounted for 51 of the juvenile cases.
