Right to counsel
While a state may have many statutes, court decisions, or court rules governing appointment of counsel for a particular subject area, a "Key Development" is a statute/decision/rule that prevails over the others (example: a state high court decision finding a categorical right to counsel in guardianships cases takes precedence over a statute saying appointment in guardianship cases is discretionary).
Legislation, Truancy - Petition Against Child
Delaware treats truancy as a status offense, pursuant to 14 Del. C. § 2730. Upon filing of a truancy matter in court, there is no right to appointed counsel for the child in a hearing on whether to impose a valid court order (VCO). 14 Del. C. § 2728. But if the child is subsequently held in contempt for a violation of the VCO (which is treated as criminal contempt), there is a right to counsel as 14 Del. C. § 2731(d) (for all violation proceedings) and 28 C.F.R. 31.303(f)(3)(v)(D) (if incarceration is sought).
If "yes", the established right to counsel or discretionary appointment of counsel is limited in some way, including any of: the only authority is a lower/intermediate court decision or a city council, not a high court or state legislature; there has been a subsequent case that has cast doubt; a statute is ambiguous; or the right or discretionary appointment is not for all types of individuals or proceedings within that category.
