Thanks for the chance to assist.

North Carolina law requires that any child in custody must be advised prior to questioning that he has the right to have a parent, guardian, or custodian present during the questioning NC ST § 7B-2101 (a),

If the child is under 14 years of age, custodial admissions or confessions resulting from interrogations may be admitted into evidence only if the child's parent, guardian, custodian, or attorney was present.
