Juvenile Delinquency in Giles, TN
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Giles 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 227 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Giles County. Of that total, 55% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 124 court cases. Another 21% were dependency cases that accounted for 48 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Giles County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Giles County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
