(C) whether further observation or assessment by the designated registrar is required before a decision can be made; As part of the preliminary investigation, Article c) requires the designated judicial officer to inform the child of the child`s right to a lawyer at the beginning of the interview with the child. T.C.A. § 37-1-126 provides that a child has the right to be represented by a lawyer in all criminal proceedings. A child has the right to a lawyer if he is accused of an undisciplined crime, if he risks being removed from the home in accordance with article 37-1-132 (b) of the T.C.A. Not all children accused of an unruly crime have the right to a lawyer. This right applies if the child is likely to be placed outside the child`s home with a person, body or institution. Before transferring custody of an unruly child to the Department of Children`s Services, the court is required to refer the child to the Ministry`s Youth Family Crisis Intervention Program under section 37-1-168 of T.C.A. A child`s assertion of the right to a lawyer should not preclude informal adjustment, if any. Victims and witnesses of offences committed by minors have the same rights in juvenile criminal proceedings as in any other adult criminal proceedings. Victims have the right to attend either an informal accommodation session or a formal hearing.
Informal adaptation sessions are organized by juvenile court officials, and victims are informed by the Juvenile Court Office of the date and time of these sessions. Formal hearings are held before a judge or judicial expert, and victims are informed of the time and date of formal hearings by the district attorney or district victims` lawyer. . . .
