3:15 - 4:00 The Basics Of Juvenile Competency- From A Prosecutor’s Perspective
In 2011 Ohio enacted ORC §2152.51-59, which defines juvenile competency and the process by which a juvenile defendant’s competency is assessed, adjudicated, and- when necessary- attained. This workshop will give an overview of the legal concept of competency, and details of the Ohio law. Particular emphasis will be given to what prosecutors might focus on as the process winds through juvenile proceedings.
