Who Has the Authority to Determine a Juvenile's Sentence Beyond the Statutory Minimum, and Are Juveniles Required to Serve Certain Sentences Consecutively?
In Re: H.V., Case no. 2012-1688
Ninth District Court of Appeals (Lorain County)
When revoking a minor's supervised release ("parole"), does a juvenile court have the authority to commit a youth to the Ohio Department of Youth Services (DYS) for a minimum time period longer than 30 days, the minimum specified in R.C. 5139.52(F)?
Does a juvenile court have the authority to order a sentence for a parole violation to be served consecutively with a sentence for a new "felony" offense?
