Juvenile Delinquency in Cocke, TN

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Cocke 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 982 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Cocke County. Of that total, 28% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 275 court cases. Another 58% were dependency cases that accounted for 569 of the juvenile cases.

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