Idaho Juvenile Rule 11. Informal Adjustment (J.C.A.)

The court, in exercising its discretion, may order an informal adjustment for any case filed under the Juvenile Corrections Act, upon such terms and conditions as the court may deem just and appropriate under the circumstances. The discretion of the court to impose an informal adjustment is not limited by the nature of the charge. The court, in its discretion, may impose or suspend detention as it deems appropriate, pursuant to an informal adjustment. Informal adjustments may be ordered at any stage of the proceedings after admission by the juvenile or finding by the court that the juvenile has committed an offense, upon notice to parties and the opportunity to be heard. The court may order a preliminary inquiry pursuant to I.C. Section 20-510 or a social report pursuant to I.C. Section 20-520 prior to an informal adjustment. 



As the Third Branch of Government, we provide access to justice through the timely, fair, and impartial resolution of cases.
