    This bill requires the Division of Juvenile Services to transfer to a correctional facility or regional jail any juvenile in its custody that has been transferred to adult jurisdiction of the circuit court and who reaches his or her eighteenth birthday. The bill requires transfer of juvenile in adult jurisdiction upon reaching eighteen years of age if he or she has either been convicted or is in a pretrial status and directs the Division of Juvenile Services to notify the circuit court of the age of a juvenile reaching the age of eighteen years of age. The bill authorizes the circuit court to conduct a hearing as to alternative placement and mandates that the position of victim be taken under consideration by the court in determining disposition or alternative placement. The bill prohibits juveniles that commit an adult offense while under the custody of the Division of Juvenile Services from returning to the placement in a juvenile facility if the juvenile has attained the age of eighteen years. Finally, the bill requires the court to conduct a hearing as to placement of a juvenile that has turned eighteen years of age and is remanded to the custody of the Division of Juvenile Services after completion of an adult sentence.
