Extortion, Crime, Legal Counseling


The problem of crime is still a social problem that is very feared and very disturbing to the community. The problem of crime is not merely a problem of the modern era of technology today, but rather a problem that needs to be analyzed to obtain the material truth required by material criminal law. The purpose of the study was to determine the factors that led to the occurrence of the crime of extortion and the efforts made to deal with the joint occurrence by adolescents in Tanete Riattang District, Bone Regency. Based on table 1 above, it can be seen that in the last 3 years starting from 2019 to 2021, the number of extortion cases carried out jointly by teenagers in Tanete Riattang District has increased from year to year. In 2019 there were 4 cases of extortion committed together by teenagers, then in 2020 there were 5 cases, then the number of cases increased in 2021 to 7 cases. 16 rexported cases of extortion committed by teenagers were then taken by the Tanete Riattang Sector Police. In general, the acts of extortion carried out jointly by teenagers in Tanete Riattang Subdistrict, Bone Regency, revolve around economic pressure in daily life, the large number of unemployed, low education and lack of legal awareness and weak appreciation and practice of religious teachings.
