Juvenile may waive an amenability hearing (10 4 2012)

Today the Ohio Supreme Court ruled that a juvenile may waive his right to have an amenability hearing. But in order to do so, the juvenile, through counsel, has to expressly state on the record a waiver of the amenability hearing AND the juvenile court has to engage in a colloquy on the record with the juvenile to determine that the waiver was made knowingly, voluntarily, and intelligently. State v. D.W., 2012-Ohio-4544.
