Juvenile Shackling in Idaho

Court of Appeals released State v. Doe today.  Over one dissent, the Court held that juveniles cannot be shackled at evidentiary hearings without an order of the court/finding of necessity.

Kind of a huge fucking deal.

Better, the Court goes on to say it thinks kids shouldn't be indiscriminately shackled at all, and asks the rules committee to look into it.

Idaho.  It's a pretty weird place.
