The Sixth Amendment right to counsel does not attach at the point when a juvenile is taken into custody and subjected to the juvenile intake and assessment process established pursuant to K.S.A. 2000 Supp. 75-7023. Whether a juvenile's Fifth Amendment rights are violated will depend upon whether a juvenile is in fact compelled to respond to a POSIT questionnaire and whether there is an attempt to use such responses against the juvenile in a criminal proceeding. There would likely be Fifth Amendment implications if POSIT responses to criminal behavior queries lead to either the filing of criminal charges or the court's imposition of a harsher sentence based on such responses. Given the State's parens patriae interest and the fact that POSIT questionnaire responses are confidential, it is unlikely under the present state of the law that a claim based upon the constitutional right of privacy would be successful. Although the fact that the information obtained during the intake and assessment process is allegedly retained indefinitely, it is only one of many factors that a court would consider in determining whether the intake and assessment process evidences a proper regard for privacy. Whether or not a parent's familial association rights are violated based on a juvenile's responses to a POSIT questionnaire will depend upon the facts of the case. While a juvenile who has been arrested for disorderly conduct may consider it intrusive to answer a question regarding sexual practices, in light of the government's interest in identifying at- risk behavior in juveniles, this limited intrusion is justified and does not run afoul of the Fourth Amendment. Finally, the fact that responses to a POSIT questionnaire may be taken into account by a prosecutor in determining whether to grant diversion does not implicate the Equal Protection Clause.

Neither Kansas statutes nor the common law doctrine of incompatibility of offices precludes one person from holding the position of council member (in a city of the first class having the mayor-council-city manager form of government) simultaneously with that of chief attorney of the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services. Cited herein: K.S.A. 1987 Supp. 8-1008

The Kansas open records act (KORA) declares that public records are generally open to the public unless mandatorily or permissibly closed by law. A diversion agreement entered into by the city prosecutor and a first-time DUI offender is a public record for purposes of the KORA. There is no express language in the municipal diversion statutes to make the terms of diversion agreements confidential. Further, there is no exception applicable to DUI diversion agreements under K.S.A. 1992 Supp. 45-221. The DUI diversion agreements are not criminal history record information, which generally is closed to the public, according to the definition in K.S.A. 1992 Supp. 22-4701. Therefore, DUI diversion agreements maintained by public agencies are public records which must be disclosed upon request. Cited herein: K.S.A. 8-1567, as amended by L. 1992, ch. 298 sec. 1 and as amended by L. 1993, ch. 259, sec. 8; K.S.A. 12-4413; 12-4415; 12-4416; 12-4418; K.S.A. 1992 Supp. 22-4701; 22-2911, as amended by L. 1993, ch. 166, sec. 3; 45-217; 45-221; K.S.A. 65-2422; 74-2012

The "personnel matters" exception to the open meetings law, K.S.A. 75-4319(b)(1), pertains to employees of public agencies. Independent contractors hired by public bodies are not employees. Therefore, discussions concerning the qualifications of persons and firms in selecting independent contractors cannot take place in an executive session but must be held in an open meeting. Cited herein: K.S.A. 75-4317; K.S.A. 1986 Supp. 75-4318; K.S.A. 75-4319
Attorney General opinion no. 1992-106 by Robert T Stephan( Book )

Renovations, alterations or construction of government buildings may be accomplished by using either uniform federal accessibility standards (UFAS) or Americans with disabilities act accessibility guidelines (ADAAG) standards. The reference to 28 C.F.R. part 36 in section 7 of 1992 House Bill No. 2602 as the only standard was a technical error. Local building code officials are not required to investigate complaints about accessibility in public buildings. The enforcement authority of the local building code-officials is limited to denying the application for a building permit for the construction or alteration of a building. Since 1992 House Bill No. 2602 states that all public buildings and facilities shall conform to federal regulations (28 C.F.R. part 36) and no state regulations have been drafted regarding the design and occupancy standard, we must infer that the legislature meant for the federal regulations and interpretations to apply in determining whether a facility is subject to the new construction standards. Unless the landlord-tenant contract provides otherwise, the tenant is not responsible for making other areas included in the path of travel accessible if such is not within the tenant's control. Cited herein: K.S.A. 58-1301, as amended by L. 1992, ch. 208, section 1; K.S.A. 1991 Supp. 58-1305, as amended by L. 1992, ch. 208 section 7; 28 C.F.R. parts 35, 36
