Under current law, a juvenile convicted as an adult following the
direct filing of charges in district court is not subject to the mandatory
minimum sentencing provisions for crimes of violence. However, a

juvenile convicted as an adult following the transfer of charges from
juvenile court to district court is subject to the mandatory minimum
sentencing for crimes of violence. The bill adds language to the juvenile
transfer statute to mirror the language currently found in the juvenile
direct file statutes, so a juvenile transferred to adult court is subject to the
same sentencing provisions as a juvenile who is in adult court based on
a direct file.
