On appeal, Juveniles DAM, IRW, and DTM contend the district court abused its discretion when it ordered their detention in juvenile facilities. The juveniles argue the district court's disposition shows an absence of concern for their rehabilitation. Essentially, they believe they were sentenced like ordinary criminals. The juveniles also complain that the district court relied on incorrect information and improperly refused to grant a continuance. The record does not support the juveniles' contentions. We are satisfied the district court neither abused its discretion nor committed any error of law. To the extent the district court inadvertently used a criminal judgment form in the juvenile dispositions, we remand for the correction of the judgment form. We thus affirm and remand.
