I was asked if a magistrate could issue an Emergency Protective Order against a juvenile. I said we should address the issue with Conditions of Release instead, but it made me curious if anyone else has used EPOs. (My case involved a victim who was not a parent or household member of the juvenile.)
Since the juvenile arguably can't dictate where he lives, I think it gets dicey. I have had good success with conditions of release - and sometimes sending parts of the issue to CPS.

I have also had good success with COR. I agree that is probably the best way to go on that issue.
