Juvenile and domestic relations court; social history report; consideration and waiver. Requires a court, whenever it adjudicates a juvenile delinquent of an act that would be a violent felony offense if committed by an adult, to direct an investigation and social history report of the juvenile to be completed and to consider the results of such report prior to entering disposition. Under current law, such report is at the discretion of the court. The bill also prohibits waiver of such report by an agreement between the Commonwealth and the juvenile and his attorney or other legal representative. The bill continues to allow such waiver of a social history, by such agreement, for misdemeanor offenses or felonies not classified as a violent felony. Read the Bill »
