Sponsored by Senator Kline, SB 5376 states that a juvenile is not eligible for deferred disposition if he or she is charged with unlawful possession of a firearm in the second degree, theft of a firearm, or possession of a stolen firearm. If a respondent is found to have been in possession of a firearm and the offender’s standard range of disposition for the offense is less than 30 days of confinement, the court will impose a minimum disposition of 10 days of confinement.

Substitute bill:  The bill as amended adds an Option E Firearm Disposition Alternative.
