Criminal Practice – Juvenile — Alford Admission – Colloquy with Judge (access required)

In re C.L. The record indicates that the juvenile was adequately apprised of the consequences of making his Alford admission, understood what would happen if he persisted in making such an admission, and made an “informed choice” to admit responsibility pursuant to Alford instead of asserting the rights that would have been available to him had he gone to hearing. The trial court’s failure to make the inquiry specified in G.S. § 15A-1022(d) neither affected the juvenile’s decision to plead nor undermined the plea‘s validity.
