Except as otherwise required by section 19-2.5-1127 for an aggravated juvenile offender and except as required by section 19-2.5-1123, the court may sentence the juvenile to alternative services funded through section 19-2.5-1404 or other alternative services programs. If a juvenile who is thirteen years of age or older fails to make satisfactory progress
in the alternative services to which the juvenile is sentenced or if the court finds
that a sentence to alternative services would be contrary to the community interest,
the court may sentence a juvenile adjudicated for an offense that would constitute
a class 3, class 4, class 5, or class 6 felony or a misdemeanor weapons charge if
committed by an adult to detention for a period not to exceed forty-five days. Release for purposes of work, therapy, education, or other good cause may be granted
by the court. The court may not sentence to detention a juvenile adjudicated for an offense that
would constitute a class 1 or class 2 felony if committed by an adult.
