Dispositional Hearing

If the juvenile is detained, the court must hold the dispositional hearing no later than twenty days after the ruling on the offenses. If the juvenile is not detained, the dispositional hearing must be held no later than sixty days after ruling on the offenses. The court may order the juvenile to undergo psychological, psychiatric, drug and alcohol, or any other examination it deems appropriate to aid in the decision of disposition. The court may order the juvenile to be supervised on probation, perform community service, pay restitution, or that he/she be removed from his/her home and placed in residential care.
