Sealed Juvenile Records Letter

Q: What happens to my juvenile record?
A:

While you are a juvenile, your record is active and available to the department. Juvenile records are confidential and cannot be accessed by others. Juvenile records can be sealed under certain circumstances and are automatically sealed at age 21 or at age 30 for sex offenders.

If you are inquiring about your juvenile record to provide information to the military, you may provide this letter to them. Should they have any question, please have them call the Juvenile Probation office at 775-887-2033 or Juvenile Court at 775-887-2038.

Sealed Juvenile Records Letter

Q: How long does probation last?
A:
Juvenile Court has jurisdiction until age 21. Probation will be terminated when terms are met and supervision is deemed no longer necessary or age 21.
Q: My child was found guilty of an offense in Juvenile Court. What is going to happen?
A:

The term guilty is not common in the Juvenile Court. A child can admit to the offense or he/she is found to have committed the offense by the Juvenile Court Judge. Following an admission or finding of committing an offense, a dispositional hearing will be held. Prior to that hearing a probation officer will do a pre-sentencing investigation and a written report to the court with recommendations.

The Court usually has two options at the time of disposition:

  • Place the child in State corrections (no probation). Child is placed by the Division of Child and Family Services in either the Nevada Youth training Center in Elko, Nevada or the Caliente youth Center in Caliente, Nevada.
  • Place the child on probation with conditions that require compliance and must be completed.  In the First Judicial Court we have 14 standard conditions of probation.
Q: What time and day is court held?
A:
Court is held every business day. If you have lost your paperwork, contact your assigned probation officer. It is your responsibility to attend your court hearing. There are no excuses allowed for missing court.
Q: What is the difference between juvenile and adult court process?
A:

They are very similar. The juvenile system offers no bail and does not have a jury.

 
The terminology is a little different. Both use the word arraignment to admit or deny an offense. The juvenile court term for Trial is Fact Finding Hearing; the juvenile court term for Sentencing is Disposition Hearing. Juveniles don’t commit crimes, they commit delinquent offenses. The basic rights are the same with the defendant having the right of an attorney, and the right against self-incrimination.

 
Below are the statutory reasons to detain a child in Juvenile Detention. Again, there is no bail:

  • If not detained, the child is likely to commit an offense dangerous to himself or to the community, or is likely to commit damage to property
  • The child will run away or be taken away so as to be unavailable for proceedings of the Court or its officer
  • The child is brought to the Juvenile Department pursuant to a Court Order or Warrant
  • The child is a fugitive from another jurisdiction
  •  Youth who are detained must have a Petition (formal charges) filed within eight judicial days from the date of arrest
Q: Can I give up custody of my child?
A:
Please contact the Division of Child and Family Services at 775-687-4943
Q: What if I refuse to pick up my child from detention?
A:

As the legal guardian, if you fail to pick up your child from Juvenile Detention, not only will you be billed for the time your youth is in custody, but you also may be referred to the Division of Child and Family Services for abandoning your child. It is every parent’s responsibility to care for their child. We can only detain for the following reasons:

(1) If not detained, the child is likely to commit an offense dangerous to himself or to the community, or is likely to commit damage to property

(2) The child will run away or be taken away so as to be unavailable for proceedings of the Court or its officer

(3) The child is brought to the Juvenile Department pursuant to a Court Order or Warrant

(4) The child is a fugitive from another jurisdiction

 
Youth who are detained must have a Petition (formal charges) filed within eight judicial days from the date of arrest.

Q: Why do I have to pick up my child?
A:
The Juvenile Probation Department will assess risk to determine the necessity of whether a child needs to be detained or not. It is not based on the desire of the parent/guardian, or attitude. There are also statutory considerations which may limit our ability to detain a child.
Q: What are the detention center visiting requirements?
A:
Complete visiting requirements can be found on the Juvenile Probation Serives' page under Detention Visitation
Q: Are medical services available to my child while in detention?
A:

Each child goes through a general medical screen questionnaire.

Also, we have either a Doctor or a physician’s assistant who visits the detention center Monday thru Friday (excluding holidays). During this time there is a general sick call as well as follow ups on preexisting medical issues

Q: How much does it cost if my child is detained at Murphy-Bernardini Regional Juvenile Justice Center?
A:
Once a youth is detained, the parent/guardian is charged a $30.00 fee for any 3 hours in a calendar day until ordered detained by a Judge. Detention hearings occur within 48 hours of being placed in custody each day Monday through Friday. There are no detention hearings on the weekend. Once the initial detention hearing has occurred and the youth remains in detention, the parent is no longer responsible for payment.
Q: My child was arrested and I would like a copy of the police report?
A:
Due to confidentiality, police reports cannot be released by the Carson City Juvenile Probation Services Department.
Q: What happens after my child has been cited or arrested?
A:

The police report will be reviewed by the District Attorney’s office and the Probation Department to determine the necessary action. The age of the youth, prior delinquent history and the seriousness of the new offense are considered. Generally one of the following will occur:

(1) Dismiss the offense. This will occur when the elements to prove an offense cannot be met beyond a reasonable doubt.

(2) Take no action (open file). This will occur pending more information on the case.

(3) Refer to the probation department for diversion. The diversion includes an informal hearing with sanctions. The sanctions depend on the offense.

(4) The District Attorney may file a Petition (formal charges) which will generate an arraignment in the Juvenile Court.

(5) The offense is determined to be so egregious the District Attorney’s office files a motion to certify the juvenile. If the juvenile is certified he/she will be charged in the adult legal system.
