http://www.pantagraph.com/news/local/advocate-juvenile-reforms-have-a-ways-to-go/article_7e908d4a-aa3f-5582-aa28-a244b624eeb4.html

"The Chicago-based Juvenile Justice Initiative supports a proposal in Illinois to require that juveniles in police custody have a lawyer with them during questioning.  Police must make a reasonable attempt to contact a child's parents under existing law."

Children in ALL states have the right & should have a lawyer present at any questioning whatsoever.  Children do not/ are not aware of any legal jarjon or procedures, they too, have legal rights under our U. S. constitution.
