Duration of involuntary temporary detention. Includes the termination of a period of involuntary temporary detention, if the minor or individual has been admitted to a facility of temporary detention, on any day or part of a day on which the clerk's office is lawfully closed as a reason to extend the duration of the period of involuntary temporary detention for adults and juveniles. Current law allows the period to extend past 72 hours for an adult only if the detention would terminate on a Saturday, Sunday, legal holiday, or day on which the court is closed and allows the period to extend past 96 hours for a juvenile only if the detention terminates on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday.
