   § 14-1-28  Transfer of cases from other

courts. –

If, during the pendency of a criminal or quasi-criminal charge against any

person in any other court it shall be ascertained that the person was under the

age of eighteen (18) years at the time of committing the alleged offense, it

shall be the duty of the court to immediately transfer the case, together with

all the papers, documents, and records of testimony connected with the case, to

the family court. The court making the transfer shall order the child to be

taken immediately to the family court or to the place of detention designated

by the family court, or release the child in the custody of some suitable

person, to appear before the family court at a time designated by the family

court. The family court shall upon the transfer proceed to hear and dispose of

the case in the same manner as if it had been instituted in that court in the

first instance.
