AGO Opinions with Topic: FINGERPRINTS OF JUVENILE OFFENDERS
AGLO 1977 No. 33 >  July 25, 1977
COURTS - JUVENILES - CHILDREN - FINGERPRINTS OF JUVENILE OFFENDERS
COURTS ‑- JUVENILES ‑- CHILDREN ‑- FINGERPRINTS OF JUVENILE OFFENDERS While the provisions of chapter 291, Laws of 1977, 1st Ex. Sess., relating to juvenile offenders, do not impliedly amend or repeal so much of § 1, chapter 259, Laws of 1977, 1st Ex. Sess., as requires the fingerprinting of juveniles adjudged to be delinquent based upon conduct which would be a felony if committed by an adult, one result of chapter 291, when it goes into effect on July 1, 1978, will be the elimination of that particular classification of individuals (i.e., a juvenile found to be delinquent) upon which chapter 259 will, in the meantime, operate; accordingly, on and after July 1, 1978, the fingerprinting of juvenile offenders will be permissive rather than mandatory.
