    Thank you for this much needed change. As a juvenile prosecutor I have had to litigate this very issue before and am glad that it is now being considered for clarity in the rules.

    I am grateful to the committee for recommending this change. I have practiced in juvenile court and this protection for all victims of sexual assault/abuse is necessary and important.

    This is a welcomed change to the Rule. It makes it clear that the protections for all extend to juvenile delinquency proceedings. This is very much supported. Thank you.
