What happens after placement in detention?
Within 48 hours (excluding weekends and holidays), a detention hearing will be held. A parent / guardian will be notified of time and place of hearing. This hearing is solely to decide whether or not your child will continue to be held pending court action. If held, the judge will issue an Order for Detention which is valid for 10 business days. An attorney will be provided to the juvenile if one is not retained by parent / guardian.
