Ind. Courts - "Juvenile delinquency appeals should be added to expedited appeals listed in Appellate Rule 21"

So proposes the Indiana Juvenile Justice Blog this morning, continuing:

Currently, every type of case involving children — child custody, child support, visitation, adoption, paternity, CHINS, and termination of parental rights — is entitled to expedited consideration by the Indiana Court of Appeals, except juvenile delinquency cases.

The current procedure results in many, many cases where the child’s disposition (sentence) has been completed before the Court of Appeals rules on the appellate issue.
