      (1) “Design capacity” means the number of youth offenders or other persons a youth correction facility is able to hold based on applicable safety codes and standards.

      (2) “Director” means the Director of the Oregon Youth Authority.

      (3) “Youth authority” means the Oregon Youth Authority.

      (4) “Youth correction facility” means a facility used for the confinement of youth offenders and other persons placed in the legal or physical custody of the youth authority and includes secure regional youth facilities, regional accountability camps, residential academies and satellites, camps and branches of those facilities.

      (5) “Youth offender” has the meaning given that term in ORS 419A.004. [1965 c.616 §29; 1969 c.597 §128; 1971 c.401 §96; 1985 c.229 §1; 1995 c.422 §88; 1999 c.109 §4; 2001 c.295 §13; 2003 c.396 §139]

 

      420.010 [Repealed by 1965 c.616 §101]

 

      420.011 Admissions to youth correction facilities; assignment of persons within custody of Department of Corrections; temporary assignment; return to Department of Corrections custody. (1) Except as provided in subsections (2) and (3) of this section, admissions to the youth correction facilities are limited to youth offenders who are at least 12 but less than 19 years of age, found by the juvenile court to have committed an act that if committed by an adult would constitute aggravated murder, murder, a felony or a Class A misdemeanor and placed in the legal custody of the Oregon Youth Authority. A youth offender admitted to a youth correction facility may not be transferred by administrative process to any penal or correctional institution.

      (2)(a) In addition to the persons placed in the legal custody of the youth authority under ORS 419C.478 (1) or 419C.481, and with the concurrence of the Director of the Oregon Youth Authority or the director’s designee, persons who are committed to the Department of Corrections under ORS 137.124 and meet the requirements of ORS 137.124 (5) or (7) may be temporarily assigned to a youth correction facility as provided by ORS 137.124 (5) or (7). A person assigned on such a temporary basis remains within the legal custody of the Department of Corrections and such reassignment is subject to termination by the Director of the Oregon Youth Authority by referring the person back to the Department of Corrections as provided in paragraph (b) of this subsection.

      (b) After a person is transferred to the physical custody of the youth authority under ORS 137.124 (5) or (7), the Director of the Oregon Youth Authority may refer the person back to the Department of Corrections for physical custody and placement if the director, after consulting with the Department of Corrections, determines that the person:

      (A) Poses a substantial danger to youth authority staff or persons in the custody of the youth authority; or

      (B) Is not likely, in the foreseeable future, to benefit from the rehabilitation and treatment programs administered by the youth authority and is appropriate for placement in a Department of Corrections institution.

      (3) Any person under 18 years of age at the time of committing the crime and under 20 years of age at the time of sentencing and commitment who, after waiver under ORS 419C.349, 419C.352, 419C.364 or 419C.370 or sentencing under ORS 137.707 (5)(b)(A) or (7)(b) or 137.712, is sentenced to a term of imprisonment in the custody of the Department of Corrections, and any person under 16 years of age who after waiver under ORS 419C.349, 419C.352, 419C.364 or 419C.370 or sentencing under ORS 137.707 (5)(b)(A) or (7)(b) or 137.712 is sentenced to a term of imprisonment in the county jail, shall be temporarily assigned to a youth correction facility by the Department of Corrections, or by the sheriff to whose custody the person has been committed, pursuant to ORS 137.124 (6). The director shall designate the appropriate youth correction facility or schools for such assignment. A person assigned to a youth correction facility under ORS 137.124 (6) and this subsection remains within the legal custody of the Department of Corrections or sheriff to whose custody the person was committed. The assignment of such a person to the youth correction facility is subject, when the person is 16 years of age or older, to termination by the director by referring the person back to the Department of Corrections or the sheriff to serve the balance of the person’s sentence. Assignment to a youth correction facility pursuant to ORS 137.124 (6) and this subsection, if not terminated earlier by the director, shall terminate upon the person’s attaining the age specified in ORS 420A.010 (5) setting the age limits for which the Oregon Youth Authority may retain legal and physical custody of the person, and the person shall be referred to the Department of Corrections or the sheriff having legal custody of the person to serve the balance of the person’s sentence.

      (4) Whenever a person committed to the custody of the Department of Corrections is temporarily assigned to a youth correction facility pursuant to this section, the youth authority may provide programs and treatment for the person, and may adopt rules relating to conditions of confinement at the youth correction facility, as the youth authority determines are appropriate. However, the person remains subject to laws and rules of the State Board of Parole and Post-Prison Supervision relating to parole. [1965 c.616 §31; 1969 c.679 §5; 1971 c.401 §98; 1971 c.458 §1; 1975 c.182 §1; 1983 c.815 §2; 1985 c.631 §7; 1987 c.320 §159; 1993 c.33 §343; 1993 c.546 §122; 1995 c.422 §§89,89a; 1995 c.423 §28; 1997 c.433 §13; 1999 c.109 §1; 2003 c.396 §140]

 

      420.014 Population limits; controlling admissions; rules. (1) The total population of youth offenders confined in the youth correction facilities may not exceed the design capacity of the facilities designated for close custody purposes by the Director of the Oregon Youth Authority. The total population limit shall include offenders in the youth correction facility who were waived by the juvenile court to be prosecuted as adults or who were prosecuted as adults under ORS 137.707.

      (2) The director by rule shall determine reasonable standards for care and treatment of youth offenders housed in youth correction facilities. Within the total limit established under subsection (1) of this section, the Director of the Oregon Youth Authority shall establish and impose a maximum allowable population level for each youth correction facility. The maximum allowable population shall not exceed the design capacity for the facility and shall be further limited by the ability of the facility to meet the standard of care and treatment established by rule under this subsection, protect communities, hold youth offenders accountable for their behavior and improve the competency of youth offenders to become responsible and productive members of their communities.

      (3) The director by rule shall establish criteria upon which the decision to place a youth in a youth correction facility must be based, and which, in turn, shall be based upon behaviors and characteristics of youths otherwise eligible for commitment to a youth correction facility.

      (4) After conferring with the juvenile court judges, the director shall develop and implement by rule, a method of controlling admissions to the youth correction facilities so as not to exceed maximum levels determined under subsections (1) and (2) of this section. [1985 c.500 §4; 1987 c.507 §1; 1993 c.762 §1; 1995 c.422 §90; 2001 c.904 §6; 2001 c.905 §7]

      (2) The juvenile departments shall develop a plan for services needed to divert the commitment of youth from the youth correction facilities, and how these services are to be administered if funds are provided. The plan must be approved in the form of a resolution by the governing body of the appropriate county and of a letter of concurrence from the presiding judge for the judicial district in which the juvenile court is located.

      (3) The youth authority shall develop and implement a statewide diversion plan after taking the local juvenile departments’ plans into consideration and after consulting with affected service providers. [1985 c.500 §7; 1993 c.676 §47; 1993 c.742 §88; 1995 c.422 §91; 1995 c.781 §44; 2012 c.37 §98]

 

      420.019 Implementation of diversion plan. (1)(a) The Oregon Youth Authority may contract with the governing body of a county or two or more counties, if the counties have joined together as a consortium or region, for implementing the statewide diversion plan, which may include juvenile parole and probation services or out-of-home placement.

      (b) A county or counties that contract with the Oregon Youth Authority under this section shall have access to a continuum of out-of-home placement options including, but not limited to, youth correction facilities, youth care centers, foster care and private placements. Participating counties shall be ensured access to an equitable share of out-of-home placements.

      (c) A county or counties that contract with the Oregon Youth Authority under this section have the responsibility for parole decisions regarding youths from the county or counties committed to youth correction facilities. In the event that a county or counties are operating over the allocated youth correction facility cap, the youth authority may assume parole authority until the county population is at the cap.

      (d) The state and county may agree that the governing body of the county or counties may subcontract for services or that the state will provide services or that the county or counties may subcontract for some services and the state provide other services as stipulated in the contract with the youth authority.

      (e) When services previously provided by the Oregon Youth Authority transfer to a county or counties, terms of the contract must include, but need not be limited to, the actual cost of employee salaries, benefits and other payroll expenses, plus support costs necessary for the transferred positions.

      (f) The youth authority is responsible for performance auditing of contracts and subcontracts.

      (g) The youth authority shall contract directly with service providers in those counties where the governing body of the county or counties chooses not to contract with the youth authority.

      (h) The funds provided to implement the diversion plan or provide for out-of-home placement or parole and probation services shall not be used by a county to supplant moneys otherwise provided to the county juvenile department for services to delinquent youth.

      (2)(a) Unless otherwise provided in the contract, a county that is contracting with the youth authority under subsection (1) of this section shall supervise state employees providing parole and probation services within the county.

      (b) Subject to a collective bargaining agreement, supervision under this subsection includes discipline, performance evaluation, training and all other functions previously carried out by state employed supervisors. [1985 c.500 §8; 1995 c.422 §92; 1997 c.249 §134]

      420.045 Parole; discharge; revocation of parole. (1) Upon finding that a youth offender placed in a youth correction facility is ready for release therefrom and that the youth offender had best be returned to the parent or guardian of the youth offender or to a suitable and desirable home or facility, the Director of the Oregon Youth Authority may, after advising the committing court, release the youth offender on parole conditioned upon good behavior.

      (2) At such time as the Director of the Oregon Youth Authority finds that final release is compatible with the safety of the community and the best interests of the youth offender, with the consent of the committing court, the Director of the Oregon Youth Authority may make and issue a final order discharging the youth offender.

      (3) The Director of the Oregon Youth Authority may revoke a parole if the conditions of the parole have been violated or if the continuation of the youth offender on parole would not be in the best interests of the youth offender or the community. After the revocation of parole, the Director of the Oregon Youth Authority shall immediately advise the committing court thereof. [1965 c.616 §37; 1969 c.679 §9; 1971 c.401 §101; 1995 c.422 §96]
