Art. 1613.  Institutional care of delinquent children

NOTE:  Art. 1613 repealed by Acts 2010, No. 893, §2, eff. when the 35th state enacts the Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children.

A child adjudicated delinquent may be placed in an institution in another party jurisdiction pursuant to this compact, but no such placement shall be made unless the child is given a court hearing on notice to the parent or guardian with opportunity to be heard, prior to his being sent to such other party jurisdiction for institutional care, and the court finds both that:

(1)  Equivalent facilities for the child are not available in the sending agency's jurisdiction.

(2)  Institutional care in the other jurisdiction is in the best interest of the child and will not produce undue hardship.

Acts 1991, No. 235, §16, eff. Jan. 1, 1992; Acts 2010, No. 893, §2.
