Art. 873.  Severance of causes for adjudication

A.  If it appears that the child or the state is prejudiced by a joinder of delinquent acts in the petition or by such joinder for trial together, the court may order separate adjudication hearings, grant severance, or provide whatever other relief justice requires.

B.  If a petition joins a request to adjudicate the child delinquent with a request for adjudication on any other jurisdictional ground authorized by this Code, the court may, in the interests of justice, order separate adjudication hearings.
