Places of confinement for juveniles; separation of juveniles from adult offenders. Provides that when juveniles who are determined by the court to be a threat to the security or safety of other juveniles detained in a juvenile secure facility are transferred to or confined to a jail or other facility for the detention of adults, such adult-detention facility must have the capacity and availability to detain juveniles in accordance with applicable federal and state law. The bill removes an existing provision that such adult-detention facility must be approved by the State Board of Corrections for the detention of juveniles. Read the Bill »
