Juvenile Delinquency in Morgan, TN

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Morgan 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 104 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Morgan County. Of that total, 14% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 15 court cases. Another 31% were dependency cases that accounted for 32 of the juvenile cases.

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