In re J.C.E. 2016-G-0062JUVENILE - R.C. 2152.18(b) provides a juvenile is entitled to credit toward his institutionalization at DYS for the time he was confined in connection with his complaint; in determining whether juvenile was confined for purposes of credit for time served, this court followed the test adopted by the Supreme Court of Ohio in State v. Napier, 93 Ohio St.3d 646 (2001), which defined that term in the adult criminal context; accordingly, the juvenile's confinement must be in a secure facility that contains lockups and other measures sufficient to ensure the safety of the surrounding community; the trial court should consider the qualities of the facility and the specific nature of the juvenile's experience at the facility to determine whether he had been sufficiently restricted so as to constitute confinement; fact that juvenile was permitted off-site family visits is not determinative of whether he was confined; this court remanded for trial court to make findings and determine whether juvenile was confined as that term is interpreted by Napier, supra.RiceGeauga 11/21/2016 11/21/2016 2016-Ohio-7843
