RE: Rule 18, N.D.R.Juv.P., Disposition; Conditions
The board proposes that a new Rule 18 be created to consolidate provisions previously contained in the Unified Judicial System Policy Manual. Proposed subdivisions (b) and (c) are derived from Policy 404 on Restitution and Community Service, proposed subdivision (d) is derived from Policy 401 on Screening and Testing Juveniles for Drug and Alcohol Use, and proposed subdivision (e) is derived from Policy 407 on Electronic Monitoring.
Proposed subdivision (f) was added by the board to clarify that the treatment of children ordered to participate in Juvenile Drug Court Program is governed by N.D. Sup. Ct. Admin. R. 56. Section 1(C) of Admin. Rule 56 specifies that the Juvenile Drug Court Advisory committee will develop policies and procedures for drug court and the intent of this subdivision is to specify that drug court procedures apply in drug court.
A copy of the proposed new rule is attached.
