Juvenile Delinquency in Washington, TN

Unfortunately, in many areas of the Washington County, juvenile delinquency issues are on the rise. There are many reasons for the rise in youth offenders. The juvenile sentence in Tennessee often depends on the severity of the crime, the number of crimes, and other family matters.

In 2016, a total of 1153 juvenile cases were reported for every 100,000 people age 10 to adulthood in the jurisdiction of Washington County. Of that total, 43% of those proceedings were delinquencies which equaled 491 court cases. Another 36% were dependency cases that accounted for 418 of the juvenile cases.

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