Description

Juvenile intake and petition; appeal to a magistrate on a finding of no probable cause. Limits the ability to appeal a decision by an intake officer not to authorize a petition relating to an offense that, if committed by an adult, would be punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor or felony, when the decision is based solely upon a finding of no probable cause. The bill requires the complainant to file the application for a warrant to a magistrate within 10 days of the issuance of written notification. The bill also specifies that if an intake officer finds (i) probable cause and (ii) that the matter is appropriate for diversion, this decision is final, and the complainant shall not have the right to appeal the decision to a magistrate.
