HB 354 -- Juvenile Records
This bill permits the records of a juvenile who has been charged with a crime which would be a class A felony, capital murder, or second degree murder to be open to the extent that the juvenile court orders. The list of violations included in a juvenile's presentence report must be made available to the circuit or prosecuting attorney after July 1, 1996, to enhance punishment, if the individual:
(1) commits a similar offense as an adult after July 1, 1996;
(2) was represented by an attorney at a formal adjudication hearing on the violation; and
(3) committed the violation within 5 years of the commission of the crime for which the individual is being tried as an adult.
The bill also adds to the acts which constitute unlawful use of weapons carrying a firearm or any other lethal weapon within 1,000 feet of any public or private school. Currently it is unlawful to carry the weapon into a school.
