(b) Notice. If neither the respondent nor the respondent's attorney is present when the stet is ordered, the clerk shall send notice to the respondent, if the respondent's whereabouts are known, and to the respondent's attorney and parent, guardian, or custodian. If notice is required, the clerk may send one notice listing all alleged delinquent acts that have been ordered stetted.
(c) Recall of Warrant or Detainer. When a stet is entered on the docket, the court shall order the clerk to take the action necessary to recall or revoke any outstanding warrant, writ, or detainer that could lead to the arrest or detention of the respondent because of the stetted alleged delinquent acts.
