SB 918 - This act provides that, when a juvenile court has a rule or otherwise requires the use of restraints during proceedings, the juvenile's attorney must have the right to be heard on a request that the restraints not be used.

If the court orders the use of restraints, the court must make findings of fact in support of the use of restraints.

This provision is identical to HCS/SCS/SB 618 (2016), HCS/SCS/SB 804 (2016), and HCS/SS/SCS/SB 663 (2016), and is similar to HB 2262 (2016).
