In the Matter of G.C., 230 N.C. App. 511 (2013)

Remanded in part
Affirmed in Part

The trial court erred by denying the juvenile’s release pending appeal without providing written “compelling reasons,” as required by G.S. 7B-2605. Here, the notation “N/A” was written in the applicable space on the Appellate Entries form where the court could have provided its compelling reasons. Also, a subsequent order entered by a different judge stated only that a previous order had committed the juvenile to a YDC and that his release “was not appropriate.” Therefore, the court vacated the order denying the juvenile’s release pending appeal and remanded the matter to the trial court to set forth its compelling reasons.
