SB259 Passes.

SB259. Juveniles; Detention of those Transferred or Certified.

The Mid-Atlantic Juvenile Defender Center strongly supported this bill, sponsored by Sen. Lucas.

This bill provides that a juvenile whose criminal case has been transferred to circuit court or certified be placed in a juvenile secure facility unless the court determines that he is a threat to the security or safety of the other juveniles detained or the staff of the facility, in which case he may be moved to an adult facility.
