             827      providing service to the withdrawn area that the county will no longer provide due to the
             828      incorporation or annexation;
             829          (C) the effects of a withdrawal on adjoining property owners, existing or projected
             830      county streets or other public improvements, law enforcement, and zoning and other municipal
             831      services provided by the county; and

             834      of an area from a township, the area is withdrawn from the township and the township
             835      continues as a township with a boundary that excludes the withdrawn area.

             2875          (b) an offense other than those listed in Subsection (1)(a) involving the use of a
             2876      dangerous weapon which would be a felony if committed by an adult, and the minor has been
             2877      previously adjudicated or convicted of an offense involving the use of a dangerous weapon
             2878      which also would have been a felony if committed by an adult.
             2879          (2) All proceedings before the juvenile court related to charges filed under Subsection


             2880      (1) shall be conducted in conformity with the rules established by the Utah Supreme Court.
             2881          (3) (a) If the information alleges the violation of a felony listed in Subsection (1), the
             2882      state shall have the burden of going forward with its case and the burden of proof to establish
             2883      probable cause to believe that one of the crimes listed in Subsection (1) has been committed
             2884      and that the defendant committed it. If proceeding under Subsection (1)(b), the state shall have
             2885      the additional burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence that the defendant has
             2886      previously been adjudicated or convicted of an offense involving the use of a dangerous
             2887      weapon.
             2888          (b) If the juvenile court judge finds the state has met its burden under this Subsection
             2889      (3), the court shall order that the defendant be bound over and held to answer in the district
             2890      court in the same manner as an adult unless the juvenile court judge finds that all of the
             2891      following conditions exist:
             2892          (i) the minor has not been previously adjudicated delinquent for an offense involving
             2893      the use of a dangerous weapon which would be a felony if committed by an adult;
             2894          (ii) that if the offense was committed with one or more other persons, the minor
             2895      appears to have a lesser degree of culpability than the codefendants; and
             2896          (iii) that the minor's role in the offense was not committed in a violent, aggressive, or
             2897      premeditated manner.
             2898          (c) Once the state has met its burden under this Subsection (3) as to a showing of
             2899      probable cause, the defendant shall have the burden of going forward and presenting evidence
             2900      as to the existence of the above conditions.
             2901          (d) If the juvenile court judge finds by clear and convincing evidence that all the above
             2902      conditions are satisfied, the court shall so state in its findings and order the minor held for trial
             2903      as a minor and shall proceed upon the information as though it were a juvenile petition.
             2904          (4) If the juvenile court judge finds that an offense has been committed, but that the
             2905      state has not met its burden of proving the other criteria needed to bind the defendant over
             2906      under Subsection (1), the juvenile court judge shall order the defendant held for trial as a minor
             2907      and shall proceed upon the information as though it were a juvenile petition.
             2908          (5) At the time of a bind over to district court a criminal warrant of arrest shall issue.
             2909      The defendant shall have the same right to bail as any other criminal defendant and shall be
             2910      advised of that right by the juvenile court judge. The juvenile court shall set initial bail in


             2911      accordance with Title 77, Chapter 20, Bail.
             2912          (6) If an indictment is returned by a grand jury charging a violation under this section,
             2913      the preliminary examination held by the juvenile court judge need not include a finding of
             2914      probable cause that the crime alleged in the indictment was committed and that the defendant
             2915      committed it, but the juvenile court shall proceed in accordance with this section regarding the
             2916      additional considerations listed in Subsection (3)(b).
             2917          (7) When a defendant is charged with multiple criminal offenses in the same
             2918      information or indictment and is bound over to answer in the district court for one or more
             2919      charges under this section, other offenses arising from the same criminal episode and any
             2920      subsequent misdemeanors or felonies charged against him shall be considered together with
             2921      those charges, and where the court finds probable cause to believe that those crimes have been
             2922      committed and that the defendant committed them, the defendant shall also be bound over to
             2923      the district court to answer for those charges.
             2924          (8) A minor who is bound over to answer as an adult in the district court under this
             2925      section or on whom an indictment has been returned by a grand jury is not entitled to a
             2926      preliminary examination in the district court.
             2927          (9) Allegations contained in the indictment or information that the defendant has
             2928      previously been adjudicated or convicted of an offense involving the use of a dangerous
             2929      weapon, or is 16 years of age or older, are not elements of the criminal offense and do not need
             2930      to be proven at trial in the district court.
             2931          (10) If a minor enters a plea to, or is found guilty of, any of the charges filed or any
             2932      other offense arising from the same criminal episode, the district court retains jurisdiction over
             2933      the minor for all purposes, including sentencing.
             2934          (11) The juvenile court under Section 78A-6-103 and the Division of Juvenile Justice
             2935      Services regain jurisdiction and any authority previously exercised over the minor when there
             2936      is an acquittal, a finding of not guilty, or dismissal of all charges in the district court.

             2940      nonprofit organization incurs any legal liability for any act or omission of the volunteer while
             2941      providing services for the nonprofit organization and no volunteer incurs any personal financial


             2942      liability for any tort claim or other action seeking damage for an injury arising from any act or
             2943      omission of the volunteer while providing services for the nonprofit organization if:
             2944          (a) the individual was acting in good faith and reasonably believed he was acting
             2945      within the scope of his official functions and duties with the nonprofit organization; and

             2947      volunteer which constitutes illegal, willful, or wanton misconduct.
             2948          (2) The protection against volunteer liability provided by this section does not apply:

             2950      aircraft or other vehicle for which a pilot or operator's license is required;
             2951          (b) when a suit is brought by an authorized officer of a state or local government to
             2952      enforce a federal, state, or local law; or
             2953          (c) where the nonprofit organization for which the volunteer is working fails to provide
             2954      a financially secure source of recovery for individuals who suffer injuries as a result of actions
             2955      taken by the volunteer on behalf of the nonprofit organization.
             2956          (3) Nothing in this section shall bar an action by a volunteer against an organization, its
             2957      officers, or other persons who intentionally or knowingly misrepresent that a financially secure
             2958      source of recovery does or will exist during a period when such a source does not or will not in
             2959      fact exist.
             2960          (4) Nothing in this section shall be construed to place a duty upon a nonprofit
             2961      organization to provide a financially secure source of recovery.
             2962          (5) The granting of immunity from liability to a volunteer under this section does not
             2963      [effect] affect the liability of the nonprofit organization providing the financially secure source
             2964      of recovery.
             2965          Section 41. Section 78B-4-514 is amended to read:
