The juvenile's first appearance in court is at a proceeding called an Admit/Deny Hearing. During the hearing, the juvenile and his/her parents or guardians are informed of the charge or charges filed against the juvenile, the maximum possible penalties that the court could impose if the juvenile pleads or is found guilty, and the juvenile's constitutional rights. The court will also ask the juvenile if he/she intends to hire their own attorney of if he/she needs to have an attorney appointed to represent him/her. In general, the court considers nearly every juvenile indigent and, if requested, will appoint an attorney to represent the juvenile. In cases where the juvenile has been arrested and held in a detention facility, the court also discusses whether the juvenile should be released or remain in custody. If the juvenile pleads guilty at the Admit/Deny Hearing, the court will order that the Nez Perce County Juvenile Probation Department prepare a social history, called a Pre-Disposition Report, and schedules a disposition/sentencing hearing to be held on a later date. If the juvenile denies the charges (pleads not guilty), the court will set the matter for final pretrial conference and an Adjudicatory Hearing (trial).
