Criminal Practice – Juvenile – Disposition Order – Insufficient Findings

The defendant-juvenile admitted to pointing a shotgun at his mother, and the trial court entered a disposition order placing the juvenile in DSS custody. As all parties agree, the trial court failed to make the findings of fact required by G.S. §§ 7B-2501(c), -2506(1)(c) and -2512.

We vacate the disposition order and remand for findings.

In re H.T.S. (Lawyers Weekly No. 012-465-22, 27 pp.) (Donna Stroud, C.J.) Appealed from Cumberland County District Court (Cheri Siler-Mack, J.) Mariamarta Conrad and Patrick Kuchyt for Cumberland County DSS; Caden William Hayes for the state; Danielle Blass for defendant. 2022-NCCOA-754
