Juvenile Delinquency in Sumner, TN

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Sumner 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 1976 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Sumner County. Of that total, 61% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 1206 court cases. Another 7% were dependency cases that accounted for 141 of the juvenile cases.

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