However, like the court in Gault, the new juvenile code in Ohio failed to cope with a problem which appears to be moving toward litigation in the near future, that of the right of an indigent juvenile offender in Ohio to be provided with a transcript of the testimony and evidence presented at his juvenile hearing with the cost thereof to be charged to the state.

At this point, I would like to turn directly to an analysis of existing case law in Ohio and throughout the nation, as well as statutory language and its interpretation by Ohio courts of the right of an indigent juvenile to a free transcript.
