Week in Review: Sept 26-30
Rainy Friday in the Tarheel State that has plans to stay around all weekend. We hope everyone stays safe and warm as we wrap up September.
Tip of the Week - Before You Please
Talk to your client about the impacts of an adjudication. While not as public as adult criminal convictions, juvenile adjudications may impact the following: immigration status, educational placement, housing conditions, eligibility to play sports, placement on a sex offender registry (in N.C. or other states) and others. Always consider the long-term consequences of what may first appear to be a short-term decision.
Due to the weather forecast at this time, we have made the decision to postpone the Central Youth Defender Forum to another date which will be determined shortly. Thank you for registering to attend and we look forward to sharing the new date with you soon.
