Happy Friday Readers! We’re back with another Week in Review and a great Raise the Age Tip for you. The office has been buzzing with questions regarding procedure and changes due to RTA. What are some things you’ve run into since its implementation? Share with us in the comments.
RAISE THE AGE TIP OF THE WEEK!
Where Is My Client Being Held?
All juveniles under the 18 shall be held in a juvenile detention center or in a facility approved by the Juvenile Justice Section of the Division of Adult Corrections and Juvenile Justice. This also includes juveniles who have been transferred to superior court. If a juvenile has been transferred to superior court and turns 18 while awaiting competition of the case, the juvenile is to be held in the custody of the sheriff where the charges arose.
Assistant Juvenile Defender Interviews
OJD has started the very hard processing of interviewing for our new Assistant Juvenile Defender. They’ll be positioned in the Western part of NC and will be working to establish a focal resource point for all things juvenile delinquency, community building and training. Can you tell we’re going to have a hard time choosing just one? Everyone is already amazing.
If you haven’t seen it already, take a look at Eric’s Holiday Video.
With less than a week away from Christmas, we hope you have all your shopping out the way. If not, be safe and grab a hot chocolate or two. Stay warm!
