26-7A-129. Judgment on juvenile cited violation. If a child is found to be in violation of the citation, the court shall enter a judgment against the child for one or more of the following:
(1) Require the child to complete a court-approved juvenile diversion program or informal adjustment administered by a court services officer;
(2) A fine and court costs not to exceed one hundred dollars;
(3) Community service;
(4) Restitution as defined in subdivision 23A-28-2(4) and as determined appropriate by the court; or
(5) Suspension or revocation of the child's driving privilege if the judgment is entered on a violation pursuant to subdivision 26-7A-126(3).
The court may set a hearing to review compliance with the judgment. If a child is unable to pay a fine, court costs, or restitution as ordered by the court, any party may request that the court order community service in lieu of the monetary judgment. At no time may a court order a child to probation or detention upon entry of a judgment on a cited violation. A judgment on a cited violation shall be a confidential matter pursuant to subsection 15-15A-7(p) but the state's attorney may maintain a nonpublic record of the judgment for purposes of determining eligibility under § 26-7A-127.
