Rule 55. Transfer of minors who present a danger in detention.

The court may order the transfer of any minor age 16 years or older held in any detention center for minors to another place of confinement, including a jail or adult confinement facility which is certified pursuant to Utah Code Ann. § 62A-7-201, upon a showing that the minor's conduct or condition endangers the safety or welfare of others in the detention center. Prior to the transfer, notice shall be given to the minor's counsel or the minor's parent, guardian or custodian in the absence of counsel, and a hearing shall be held concerning the proposed transfer. The minor shall be present at the hearing except when the transfer is held under exigent circumstances or during the non-working hours of the court. Under those circumstances, a hearing on the transfer shall be held within 48 hours after the transfer.
