In the Matter of A.W., 182 N.C. App. 159 (2007)

Held: 
Reversed and Remanded

The trial court committed reversible error by accepting the juvenile’s admission where the court omitted two of the six mandatory inquiries in G.S. 7B-2407(a). The fact that the juvenile signed a transcript of admission did not relieve the trial court of its duty to orally address the juvenile as to each of the questions. Therefore, the juvenile’s admission to possession of marijuana with the intent to sell or deliver was not a product of informed choice.
