This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
The appellate court reversed, finding that the juvenile court erred in its decision to dismiss the case. The appellate court re-affirmed the State’s position that a juvenile court judge does not have the power to make guilt or innocence determinations at juvenile bindover proceedings. The appellate court also rejected the juvenile court’s interpretation of the discovery rules as “overly-expansive.” The appellate court’s ruling today will impact the result of several cases now pending in the Court of Appeals on similar issues.
