In re Interest of J.A.

Nebraska Supreme Court
510 N.W.2d 68 (1994)

  • Written by Tammy Boggs, JD

Facts

In June 1992, the Sarpy County attorney (plaintiff) petitioned the juvenile court for a finding of delinquency as to J.A. (defendant) based on conduct amounting to disturbing the peace. J.A. admitted the conduct, and the juvenile court took jurisdiction over her. J.A. was ordered to attend a 30-day evaluation at the youth-development center in Geneva (Geneva). Thereafter, the court continued several dispositional hearings, apparently to see how J.A. progressed. The court imposed certain terms and conditions on J.A., including an order to comply with laws and ordinances and an order to abstain from drug and alcohol consumption. Within a few months, J.A. violated the orders; she was arrested after fighting with her mother, had been drinking alcohol and sniffing paint, and had been found with an elevated blood alcohol content. At a dispositional hearing, J.A. admitted her misconduct. The court ordered her commitment to Geneva without providing explicit reasons for the order. J.A. appealed, arguing that the court erred in committing her to Geneva without articulating its reasons.
