Juvenile Delinquency in Henry, TN
Unfortunately, in many areas of the Henry 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 204 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Henry County. Of that total, 38% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 77 court cases. Another 26% were dependency cases that accounted for 54 of the juvenile cases.
A lot of counties, including, Henry County, are focusing on family counseling and relationships rather than punishment for juvenile crimes. Future Henry County juvenile delinquency tallies will show whether or not this approach is working.
