In the Matter of J.A.G., 206 N.C. App. 318 (2010)

Held: 
Reversed and Remanded

The trial court erred by accepting the juvenile’s admission because it did not comply with G.S. 7B-2407(a). Of the six mandatory requirements in that subsection for accepting a juvenile’s admission, the trial court omitted three, in that the court did not inform the juvenile of the most restrictive disposition, that his admission waived his right to confront the witnesses against him, or that he had a right to remain silent and anything he said could be used against him.
