If it is alleged that a juvenile offender has violated a condition of probation or
of a court-ordered placement, the county or district attorney, the current custodian
of the juvenile offender, or the victim of the offense committed by the offender may
file a report with the assigned community supervision officer of the juvenile offender. If, upon review by the assigned community supervision officer of the juvenile offender,
it is determined that the violation is eligible under K.S.A. 38-2392, and amendments thereto, for review by the court, the assigned community supervision
officer may file a report with the court describing the alleged violation. The court shall provide copies of the report to the parties to the proceeding. The court, upon the court's own motion or the motion of the secretary of corrections
or any party, shall set the matter for hearing and may issue a warrant pursuant to
K.S.A. 38-2342, and amendments thereto, if there is probable cause to believe that the juvenile
poses a significant risk of physical harm to another or damage to property. Upon receipt of the motion, the court shall fix a time and place for hearing and
provide notice to the movant and to the current custodian of the juvenile offender
and to each party to the proceeding. If the court finds by a preponderance of the evidence that the juvenile offender
has absconded from supervision, violated a condition of probation or placement or
committed a technical violation for a third or subsequent time, the court may, subject
to the overall case length limit, extend or modify the terms of probation or placement
or enter another sentence pursuant to K.S.A. 38-2361, and amendments thereto, except that a child support order which has been registered
under K.S.A. 38-2321, and amendments thereto, may only be modified pursuant to K.S.A. 38-2321, and amendments thereto.
