1998 Legislation: Juvenile Law Reform

Record #:
The 1998 NC General Assembly undertook the first complete review and revision of North Carolina's juvenile laws since 1979. The Juvenile Justice Reform Act substantially changes the procedures and sanctions that apply to young people who violate the law, such as running away from home or being beyond a parent's control. It also rewrites and recodifies numerous other juvenile laws.
