(1)(a) A parent or legal guardian of a youth offender, if the parent or guardian was served with summons under ORS 419C.300 (Time limits on issuance of summons), 419C.303 (Form of summons) and 419C.306 (Effect of summons) prior to the adjudication or at least 10 days prior to disposition, is subject to the jurisdiction of the court for purposes of this section. The court may:

(A) Order the parent or guardian to assist the court in any reasonable manner in providing appropriate education or counseling for the youth offender;

(B) If the youth offender is within the jurisdiction of the court for having committed an act that if committed by an adult would constitute a violation of ORS 166.250 (Unlawful possession of firearms), 166.370 (Possession of firearm or dangerous weapon in public building or court facility) or 166.382 (Possession of destructive device prohibited), require the parent or guardian to pay or cause to be paid all or part of the reasonable costs of any mental health assessment or screening ordered by the court under ORS 419C.109 (Initial disposition of youth taken into custody) (3);

(C) If the court orders probation, require the parent or guardian to enter into a contract with the juvenile department in regard to the supervision and implementation of the youth offender’s probation; or

(D) If the court orders probation, require the parent or guardian to pay all or a portion of the supervision fee if a supervision fee is imposed under ORS 419C.446 (Probation) (2).

(b) In all cases in which a youth offender is placed on probation, the juvenile department and the parent or guardian shall develop a plan for supervision of the youth offender. The plan must be reasonably calculated to provide the supervision necessary to prevent further acts of delinquency given the individual circumstances of the youth offender. The court shall review and ratify the plan and make the plan a part of the probation order.

(2) The court may require the parent or guardian to pay a specific sum not to exceed $1,000 for a violation by the parent or guardian of the court’s order or the contract under subsection (1)(a) of this section.

(3) The court may not revoke a youth offender’s probation solely because of a failure of the youth offender’s parent or guardian to comply with an order or a contract under subsection (1)(a) of this section. [1993 c.33 §253; 1995 c.592 §1; 1999 c.577 §12; 2001 c.485 §1; 2003 c.396 §129]
