A. A child who is any of the following shall not be committed or awarded to the department of juvenile corrections:
1. Adjudicated delinquent for an offense that is not a felony unless the child has been previously adjudicated delinquent for an offense that is a felony or is seriously mentally ill.
2. Under fourteen years of age.
3. A dependent or incorrigible child unless the child is adjudicated delinquent and is not excluded under paragraph 1 or 2 of this subsection.

When the child is discharged by competent medical authority, the juvenile court may order the child’s commitment to the department of juvenile corrections. In any case copies of records, examinations and evaluations shall be made of the findings of the medical examination and of any subsequent treatment and discharge, which copies shall accompany the child’s commitment papers.
C. If the child is a dependent child and is committed or awarded to the department of juvenile corrections, the foster care review board shall review the child’s case as required by section 8-515.03.
