Amends the Juvenile Court Act of 1987. Provides that an alleged juvenile delinquent must be brought before a judicial officer within 24 hours (rather than 40 hours) to determine further custody and that an initial detention hearing shall be no later than the morning after the juvenile arrived in placement, including weekends and holidays. Provides that if the juvenile is hospitalized or receiving treatment, the 24-hour period will not begin until the juvenile is released from the hospital or treatment center. Provides that if false information is given by the juvenile as to age, the 24-hour period will begin once it is determined that the juvenile is subject to the Act. Provides that the minor must be released from custody at the expiration of the 24-hour period if the minor is not brought before a judicial officer within that period. Provides that after the initial 24-hour period has lapsed, the court may review the minor's custodial status at any time prior to the trial or sentencing hearing.
