    (2) the nature of the delinquent act committed by the juvenile;

    (3) the date and place of the juvenile delinquency hearing;

    (4) the order of the court placing the juvenile on probation; and

    (5) the conditions of the juvenile’s probation.

    (b) The juvenile probation certificate shall be furnished to and signed by the juvenile and a custodial parent, guardian, or custodian of the child, if other than parent. It shall be fully explained to them, and they shall be informed about the consequences of violating the conditions of probation, including the possibility of revocation of probation. A copy of the juvenile probation certificate shall also be furnished to the Commissioner. The probation certificate is not invalidated if it is not signed as required by this subsection.

    (c) The signature of a custodial parent, guardian, or custodian on a probation certificate shall constitute verification that the parent, guardian, or custodian understands the terms of juvenile probation and agrees to facilitate and support the child’s compliance with such terms and to attend treatment programs with the child as recommended by the treatment provider.

    (d) The juvenile probation certificate shall be full authority for the exercise by the Commissioner of all the rights and powers over and in relation to the juvenile prescribed by law and by the order of the court. (Added 2007, No. 185 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. Jan. 1, 2009.)
