JUVENILE FLOWCHART IS LIVE!!!!!!!!

Here it is! Introducing the C-PASS juvenile flow chart.


This chart is a generic interactive chart with downloadable fillable generic forms. The great thing about this is that if something changes, I can always get in there and change things around immediately.


We understand that every agency does things differently so this may not be exactly how your agency does things. ALWAYS DEFAULT TO YOUR AGENCY RULES/REGS. This is meant to be used as a guide only.


Speaking of changes, I have just been informed that the NYS just raised the lower age threshold for juvenile delinquency. . Individuals under the age of 12 will no longer be held criminally liable for the majority of conduct that would be considered a crime if committed by an adult. However, a child between the ages of 7 and 12 could still be held criminally liable (i.e., be determined to be a juvenile delinquent) in cases of manslaughter and murder. The law will go into effect on December 29, 2022.


Never fear though, as I will change this flow chart to reflect this at the end of the year.
