    Juvenile Community Review Board 19-2-210

    H. Michael Steinberg is both an experienced and a dedicated Colorado Juvenile Criminal Defense Attorney

    As a former Senior – Career Arapahoe – Douglas County District Attorney – in his13 years (1984 – 1997) years as a prosecutor – H. Michael was assigned to the prosecution of hundreds of juvenile prosecutions. As a Colorado Criminal Defense Lawyer for the last 16 years (1997 – 2013) – he has successfully handled hundreds more juvenile cases.

    Juvenile criminal defense lawyers must be specialized in this area and must have specialized training and experience to be effective on behalf of their clients… essentially just children. Because Juvenile Court is different than adult court –  an experienced lawyer in adult may be incompetent to practice in juvenile court.

    Where your child’s freedom and future is at stake…go with experience every time.

Upon the effective date of such resolution and notice to the department of human services, no juvenile committed to the custody of the department of human services shall be placed into a residential community placement in that county or region unless and until such placement is approved by the juvenile community review board.

    (1.5) A juvenile community review board may be consolidated with other local advisory boards pursuant to section 24-1.7-103, C.R.S.

    (2) Notification of any placement of a juvenile under the jurisdiction of the juvenile parole board shall be made to the juvenile community review board prior to or at the time of placement.

    (3) (a) Prior to placement of a juvenile in a residential community placement, the juvenile community review board shall review the case file of the juvenile.

Each juvenile referred to the board shall be reviewed within fifteen days from the date the referral is received.

    (b) The board shall review the case file of the juvenile and make a decision regarding residential community placement, taking into consideration the results of the objective risk assessment by the department of human services, the needs of the juvenile, and the criteria established by the juvenile community review board based on the interests of the community. Objective risk criteria shall be established and maintained by the department of human services and shall be based upon researched factors that have been demonstrated to be correlative to risk to the community.

    (c) All names, addresses, and information regarding a juvenile reviewed by the juvenile community review board shall be confidential and not disclosed except to such board or its designees, the Colorado bureau of investigation, and any law enforcement agency, without express written permission of the juvenile and the legal custodian.
