Johnson, J.

HB1140, among other provisions, identifies that with few exceptions, law enforcement officers would be required to provide a juvenile with access to an attorney before the juvenile waives any constitutional rights before a law enforcement officer.

Also, with few exceptions, statements made by a juvenile after the juvenile is contacted by a law enforcement officer will not be admissible in a juvenile offender or adult criminal court proceeding.

Additionally, the bill lays out circumstances whereby law enforcement may question a juvenile without an attorney.
