Art. 913.  Revocation of probation; procedure; evidence

A.  A motion filed to revoke a child's probation shall be accompanied by a supporting affidavit specifying the claimed violations which form the basis of the revocation.  The child shall be entitled to a copy of the motion and supporting affidavit.

B.  Unless the child waives his right, the court shall conduct a contradictory hearing.  At this hearing, the child shall be entitled to:

(1)  The right to confront and cross-examine adverse witnesses.

(2)  The right to appear in person and to present witnesses in his own behalf.

(3)  The right to have the state bear the burden of providing by clear and convincing evidence that he violated a condition of his probation which was contained in the order of disposition.

C.  The hearing may be more informal and summary than an adjudication hearing.  Consistent with the child's constitutional rights and the burdens upon the prosecution which full compliance with the Code of Evidence might otherwise entail, the court shall have discretion in the receipt and consideration of proffered evidence.

D.  An order revoking probation shall comply with the requirements of Article 903.

Acts 1991, No. 235, §8, eff. Jan. 1, 1992; Acts 1995, No. 1158, §1.
