18A:47-8. Contribution by parents toward the support of delinquents
Whenever a person is committed to such a special school the judge making the adjudication shall inquire into the family conditions and circumstances surrounding the delinquent. If in his opinion the parents of the delinquent are of sufficient ability to maintain him, the judge may include in the order of commitment an order requiring them to pay to the board of education of the district such sum toward the support, maintenance, and clothing of the delinquent, as in the discretion of the judge may be proper. The order for payment may be enforced by attachment as for a contempt of the court.
