Legislation from 2004 Session
This Act requires DCF, in consultation with Court Support Services Division, DSS, and the Child Advocate, and community providers to establish a plan for female status offenders and delinquents. The Plan is due to the Select Committee on Children no later than January 1, 2005.
This Act requires DCF to report to the Select Committee on Children the following:
This Act permits the criminal courts to transfer sexual assault cases of 14 or 15 year olds accused of having consensual sexual intercourse with a victim under 13 to juvenile court at the request of the state prosecutor.
This Act allows only male juvenile offenders to be placed at the Connecticut Juvenile Training School.
Conn. Gen. Stat. 17a-114(c) has been amended, effecitve October 1, 2004, to allow children who are 14 or older to be placed in a non-licensed special study foster home for a period of up to 90 days, pending foster care licensing. See Act No. 04-88.
This expands the current waiver provision, which allows placement pending licensing only with relatives. The requirements that the placement be in the best interests of the child, that a basic family assessment and satisfactory home visit have been conducted, and that all adults living in the home meet criminal history criteria still apply.
