ADMINISTRATION OF PSYCHOTROPIC MEDICATION TO A CHILD IN SHELTER CARE OR IN FOSTER CARE WHEN PARENTAL CONSENT HAS NOT BEEN OBTAINED (a) Motion for Court Authorization for Administration of Psychotropic Medications. (1) Whenever the department believes that a child in its physical or legal custody requires the administration of a psychotropic medication, and the child’s parents or legal guardians have not provided express and informed consent as provided by law, the department or its agent shall file a motion with the court to authorize the administration of the psychotropic medication before the administration of the medication, except as provided in subdivision (c) of this rule. In all cases in which a motion is required, the motion shall include the following information: (A) The written report of the department describing the efforts made to enable the prescribing physician to obtain express and informed consent for providing the medication to the child and describing other treatments considered or recommended for the child; and (B) The prescribing physician’s signed medical report, as required by law. (2) The department must serve a copy of the motion, and notify all parties of its proposed administration of psychotropic medication to the child in writing, or by whatever other method best ensures that all parties receive notification of the proposed action, within 48 hours after filing the motion for court authorization. (3) If any party objects to the proposed administration of the psychotropic medication to the child, that party must file its objection within 2 working days after being notified of the department’s motion. (b) Court Action on Department’s Motion for Administration of Psychotropic Medication. (1) If no party timely files an objection to the department’s motion, the court may enter its order authorizing the proposed administration of the psychotropic medication without a hearing. Based on its determination of the best interests of the child, the court may order additional medical consultation or require the department to obtain a second opinion within a reasonable time, not more than 21 calendar days. When the court orders an additional medical consultation or second medical opinion, the department shall file a written report including the results of this additional consultation or a copy of the second medical opinion with the court within the time required by the court, and shall serve a copy of the report as required by subdivision (a)(2) of this rule. (2) If any party timely files its objection to the proposed administration of the psychotropic medication to the child, the court shall hold a hearing as soon as possible on the department’s motion. (A) At such hearing, the medical report of the prescribing physician is admissible in evidence. (B) At such hearing, the court shall ask the department whether additional medical, mental health, behavioral, counseling, or other services are being provided to the child that the prescribing physician considers to be necessary or beneficial in treating the child’s medical condition, and which the physician recommends or expects to be provided to the child with the medication. (C) The court may order additional medical consultation or a second medical opinion, as provided in subdivision (b)(1) of this rule. (D) After considering the department’s motion and any testimony received, the court may order that the department provide or continue to provide the proposed psychotropic medication to the child, on a determination that it is in the child’s best interest to do so. (c) Emergency Situations. (1) Shelter Care. When a child is initially removed from the home and taken into custody under section 39.401, Florida Statutes, and the department continues to administer a current prescription of psychotropic medication to the child, the department shall request court authorization for the continued administration of the medication at the shelter hearing. This request shall be included in the shelter petition. (A) The department shall provide all information in its possession to the court in support of its request at the shelter hearing. The court may authorize the continued administration of the psychotropic medication only until the arraignment hearing on the petition for adjudication, or for 28 days following the date of the child’s removal, whichever occurs first. (B) When the department believes, based on the required physician’s evaluation, that it is appropriate to continue the psychotropic medication beyond the time authorized by the court at the shelter hearing, the department shall file a motion seeking continued court authorization at the same time as it files the dependency petition, within 21 days after the shelter hearing. (2) When Delay Would Cause Significant Harm. Whenever the department believes, based on the certification of the prescribing physician, that delay in providing the prescribed psychotropic medication to the child would, more likely than not, cause significant harm to the child, the department must submit a motion to the court seeking continuation of the medication within 3 working days after the department begins providing the medication to the child. (A) The motion seeking authorization for the continued administration of the psychotropic medication to the child shall include all information required in subdivision (a)(1) of this rule. The required medical report must also include the specific reasons why the child may experience significant harm, and the nature and the extent of the potential harm, resulting from a delay in authorizing the prescribed medication. (B) The department shall serve the motion on all parties within 3 working days after the department begins providing the medication to the child. (C) The court shall hear the department’s motion at the next regularly scheduled court hearing required by law, or within 30 days after the date of the prescription, whichever occurs sooner. However, if any party files an objection to the motion, the court shall hold a hearing within 7 days. (3) In Emergency Psychiatric Placements. The department may authorize the administration of psychotropic medications to a child in its custody in advance of a court order in hospitals, crisis stabilization units, and in statewide inpatient psychiatric programs. Should the department do so, it must seek court authorization for the continued administration of the medication as required in subdivision (a) of this rule. RULE 8.415. JUDICIAL REVIEW OF DEPENDENCY CASES (a) – (e) [No change] (f) Court Action. (1) – (7) [No change] (8) If a youth in the legal custody of the department immediately before his or her 18th birthday petitions the court at any time before his or her 19th birthday requesting the court’s continued jurisdiction, the court may retain or reinstate jurisdiction for a period of time not to continue beyond the date of the youth’s 19th birthday. This continued jurisdiction is for the purpose of determining whether appropriate aftercare support, Road-to-Independence Scholarship, transitional support, mental health, and developmental disability services have been provided to the youth. (9) If a petition for special immigrant juvenile status and an application for adjustment of status have been filed on behalf of a foster child and the petition and application have not been granted by the time the child reaches 18 years of age, the court may retain jurisdiction solely for the purpose of allowing the continued consideration of the petition and application by federal authorities. Review hearings shall be set solely for the purpose of determining the status of the petition and application. The court’s jurisdiction shall terminate on the final decision of the federal authorities, or on the immigrant child’s 22nd birthday, whichever occurs first. ( 8 10 ) The court shall enter a written order on the conclusion of the review hearing including a statement of the facts, those findings it was directed to determine by law, a determination of the future course of the proceedings, and the date, time, and place of the next hearing.

USC falls to UCLA in crosstown showdown

first_imgThe USC-UCLA rivalry’s latest chapter was written Sunday when the No. 3 Trojans (18-4) hosted No. 1 UCLA (22-2). It was a battle, as neither team had more than a one-score lead until the fourth frame, but the Bruins eventually overpowered the Trojans in a 10-8 win.It was an electric scene at Uytengsu Aquatics Center as the stands were packed with boisterous Trojan and Bruin fans. USC freshman goalie McQuin Baron enjoyed the atmosphere.“It’s awesome,” Baron said. “Definitely a blessing to play at USC and especially in a new stadium like this … It’s awesome playing under the lights, night game with a big crowd, definitely brings a different vibe to the game.”Senior driver Rex Butler also enjoyed Sunday’s scene.“It was definitely exciting,” Butler said. “Emotions were running high and it was good to get a packed house for the first time in the new pool complex for a big rivalry game. It was a fun experience.”Return of the Mac · Redshirt junior two-meter Mac Carden picked up his 15th goal of the season in the second half of USC’s loss to UCLA on Sunday night. Carden now has 41 scores in his Trojan career. – Brian Ji | Daily TrojanNot even thirty seconds into the game, the Bruins struck first. Butler scored less than a minute after that with 6:59 left in the first, setting the pace for an up-tempo match. The crosstown rivals went back and forth during first quarter and the score was tied 3-3 going into the second.USC freshman utility James Walters scored a goal not even a minute into the second frame to give the Trojans their first lead of the game at 4-3. The Trojans and Bruins exchanged two goals before USC freshman driver Lazar Pasuljevic ripped one in the back of the net with 2:51 remaining in the half to give USC a 6-5 lead. UCLA’s Ryder Roberts would have a chance to tie the game up with a penalty shot late in the second, but Baron blocked it. Baron believes this save helped keep his team in the game.“It was a big momentum builder for our team because if they would have scored that it would have been tied 6-6 and would have brought it back into their hands,” Baron said.Baron would hold UCLA scoreless from that point until halftime. However, the second half was a much different story.Roberts, who is one of UCLA’s leading scorers, scored two straight goals in the beginning of the third. Butler broke a USC scoring drought with 3:20 left in the quarter to tie the game at 7-7. UCLA and USC then traded goals, and it seemed the game would be tied going into the fourth. But, with under a minute left in the third quarter, UCLA’s Paul Roberts avenged his brother’s earlier missed penalty shot by shooting a laser past Baron on another penalty to give UCLA a 9-8 lead going into the final quarter.Roberts’ late score was a turning point for the Bruins, and they capitalized on the momentum when Cristiano Mirarchi gave the Bruins the first two-goal lead for either team at 10-8. The Bruins buckled down on defense, and the Trojans were unable to mount a comeback. After taking a 6-5 lead into the half, the Trojans were outscored 5-2 in the second half and held scoreless in the fourth quarter.Butler, who had two key goals, talked about the Trojans’ struggles in the second half.“We had the momentum and then a few defensive lapses,” Butler said. “We weren’t getting guys quite quick enough and they strung together a couple goals, and we just couldn’t fight our way back into it … We were just trying to stay composed, and stay level-headed throughout that whole game. UCLA wouldn’t just go away.”Baron believes that another key to UCLA’s offensive success was having multiple previous experiences facing him.“It was our third time playing them,” Baron said. “They’ve learned my tendencies. They know how I play as a goalie and where to beat me.”Nonetheless, Baron believes that when it comes to this crosstown rivalry, any team can come away with a victory.“They came out strong,” Baron said. “They really wanted it, just as bad as we did, of course, but with two teams like this on any given day, one can beat the other.”Despite having lost two of their last four games, Butler believes his team is in fine position right now.“It doesn’t really change a whole lot for us,” Butler said. “We are still gonna have the same mindset, and we just want to go out and bounce back from these games and correct our mistakes … I think, if anything, it’s just going to motivate us to train a little harder, be a little bit more focused. We didn’t lose a championship here today.”Despite the Trojans’ struggles, Butler said an earlier loss to Stanford motivated him to improve.“This whole week of practice, I was trying to focus on getting my shots to go early,” Butler said. “In the Stanford game, I was zero for five and didn’t really get anything going until the end, so I was really trying to stay focused and I was getting great passes and great looks from my teammates, so they made it pretty easy on me.”USC will go on the road next weekend to face Long Beach State on Saturday, Nov. 8, and UC Irvine Sunday, Nov. 9, with both games starting at noon.last_img read more

Thurston County Wins Grant from Center for Holistic Defense

first_imgFacebook16Tweet0Pin0  Submitted by Thurston CountyThe county’s Director of the Office of Assigned Counsel and a handful of staff members traveled to New York City last week thanks to a technical assistance grant from the Center for Holistic Defense.Thurston County’s Office of Assigned Counsel is one of only four teams in the nation to win a 2014-2015 technical assistance grant that will link county staff with experts from the center to help build the “holistic defense” model into the existing public defender services provided by the county. The grant paid for county staff to travel to the Center for Holistic Defense in New York City to meet with staff and managers, and will also pay for center staff to conduct site visits to Olympia later this year and training in 2015.“This technical assistance grant will really complement our efforts to stop churning people through the criminal justice system, and instead give us tools and strategies to help us stabilize our clients’ lives to help them stay out of the justice system and succeed.” said Daryl Rodrigues, Director of the county’s Office of Assigned Counsel.“I’m very excited about this grant, and my hope is that it will really propel our efforts forward when it comes to improving the county’s criminal justice system,” said Thurston County Commissioner Cathy Wolfe. “The holistic defense model has seen great success in New York when it comes to getting better outcomes for clients and reducing criminal justice and incarceration costs. I’m eager to see what we can do in Thurston County to reach those same goals.”The “holistic defense” model was first developed in the late 1990s by a group of New York public defense attorneys and staff calling themselves The Bronx Defenders. Going beyond just legal defense for low-income clients for their criminal charges, The Bronx Defenders also has developed strategies to offer social work support, social services, plus legal advocacy for civil, family, housing, employment and immigration issues their clients face. The goal is to address the underlying issues that contribute to court involvement, and support clients so that they can break the cycle of criminal justice involvement and gain self-sufficiency while still requiring accountability. The Center for Holistic Defense is part of The Bronx Defenders organization, and the center’s technical assistance grants are supported in part by the Center for Court Innovation and the U.S. Justice Department’s Bureau of Justice Assistance.The Thurston County Office of Assigned Counsel provides legal defense counsel and services for poor citizens of Thurston County who are accused of crimes or who are at risk of having their children removed by the state. The team of 18 attorneys and eight staff members also provide legal defense services for defendants in Tumwater municipal court through a contract with the city.“One of the first things we’ll do to incorporate the holistic defense strategy in our office is to hire a social worker,” said Rodrigues. “We’re also looking at organizing our referrals for clients to some of the services that are utilized the most. Clearly the referrals for drug treatment and alcohol treatment are high on the list, but I think you would be surprised to learn how many of our clients just need some financial counseling or employment assistance or housing assistance to help get their lives back on track.”Rodrigues continued, “I’m confident that the assistance and training we’ll get from this grant will start paying off for our clients and for the county in no time.”To learn more about The Bronx Defenders and the Center for Holistic Defense, visit www.bronxdefenders.org.To learn more about the county’s Office of Assigned Counsel, visit www.co.thurston.wa.us/oac.last_img read more
