    • As we indicated on July 13, when you raised this same point, Gov. Terry Branstad signed Senate File 2288 into law March 9, 2016. The law makes juvenile records confidential unless a judge issues an order making them public. The law followed on a recommendation made by the governor’s Working Group on Justice Policy Reform and drew support from figures in local and state government, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and others. Cf. “Senate File 2288: an Act relating to the confidentiality of juvenile court records in delinquency proceedings,” passed by the Iowa Senate 48-0 Feb. 25, 2016, and by the Iowa House 97-1 March 1, 2016.

  1. I don’t think it’s really any concern of anyone’s or our business if a juvenile is arrested for something that is not a real threat to the public or a major story. Otherwise, it’s just gossip. Just my opinion.
