Juvenile Delinquency in Johnson, TN

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Johnson 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 315 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Johnson County. Of that total, 46% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 146 court cases. Another 28% were dependency cases that accounted for 88 of the juvenile cases.

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