Week in Review: Nov 4-8

Before we begin.

With respect and gratitude to those who have served and are serving today, The Office of the Juvenile Defender salute you for your service and sacrifice.

The leaves are falling and it’s getting colder, but Raise the Age is just heating up. The Office of the Juvenile Defender is completing training all across the state, have you attended?

A quick reminder about fee applications…Any offense originally charged as a Class E through I felony disposed of in juvenile court after December 1, 2018 is paid at $60 per hour.  For more information about privately assigned counsel rates, click here

RAISE THE AGE TIP OF THE WEEK

Where Can I Find the Law on RTA?

If you want to see the Session Laws which include the Raise the Age changes, see:

  • Senate Bill 413: 2019 Session Amendments to the RTA Bill (Juvenile Justice Reinvestment Act)
  • Senate Bill 257: The final bill budget for Session Law 2017; info pertaining to the Juvenile Justice Reinvestment Act can be found on pages 309-325

You can also check out the NC General Assembly website.  Look under “Bills and Laws,” then “General Statutes.”  You can search by citation or test, or you can look at Chapter 7B under the Table of Contents, and see the most recent changes to statute text on the right side of the statute.

UPCOMING EVENT!

The questions will also be posted on our Facebook page “North Carolina Office of the Juvenile Defender” as well!
