Print This

When the petition alleges a child 14 years of age or older to be a delinquent child as defined by subsection (9) of 45.0103, by virtue of having committed an act which would constitute a felony if committed by an adult, the court shall:

(1) proceed as otherwise provided in 45.0330 through 45.0335; or

(2) upon request of the Attorney General, continue the case for further investigation to determine whether the court should certify the child for criminal proceedings as an adult under subsection (d) of 45.0115, in which event the court shall advise the child and his parents, guardian, or legal custodian of the possible consequences of the certification and all constitutional and legal rights in connection with it.
