Juvenile Delinquency in Gibson, TN

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Gibson 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 982 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Gibson County. Of that total, 53% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 523 court cases. Another 31% were dependency cases that accounted for 304 of the juvenile cases.

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