38-2368.Violation of condition of probation or placement. [See Revisor's Note] (a) If it is alleged that a juvenile offender has violated a condition of probation or of a court-ordered placement, the county or district attorney, the victim of the offense committed by the offender, the assigned court services officer or the current custodian and placement of the juvenile offender may file a report with the court describing the alleged violation. The court shall provide copies of the report to the parties to the proceeding. The court, upon the court's own motion or the motion of the commissioner or any party, shall set the matter for hearing and may issue a warrant pursuant to K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 38-2342, and amendments thereto. Upon receipt of the motion, the court shall fix a time and place for hearing and provide notice to the movant and to the current custodian and placement of the juvenile offender and to each party to the proceeding. Except as set out in subsection (b), if the court finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the juvenile offender violated a condition of probation or placement, the court may extend or modify the terms of probation or placement or enter another sentence pursuant to K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 38-2361, and amendments thereto, except that a child support order which has been registered under K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 38-2321, and amendments thereto, may only be modified pursuant to K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 38-2321, and amendments thereto.

(B) allowing the juvenile to remain in home is contrary to the welfare of the juvenile; or

(C) immediate placement of the juvenile is in the juvenile's best interest; and

(2) reasonable efforts have been made to maintain the family unit and prevent the unnecessary removal of the juvenile from the juvenile's home or that an emergency exists which threatens the safety of the juvenile. The court shall state the basis of each finding in writing.
