Juvenile Delinquency in Hamblen, TN

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Hamblen County, juvenile delinquency crimes are on the rise. There are many reasons for the increase in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Tennessee often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of offenses, and other family matters.

In 2016, a total of 800 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Hamblen County. Of that total, 58% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 460 court cases. Another 27% were dependency cases that accounted for 212 of the juvenile cases.

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