Juvenile Delinquency in Hickman, TN

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Hickman 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.

Of that total, 44% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 302 court cases. Another 43% were dependency cases that accounted for 290 of the juvenile cases.

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