Name: In re Brandon H.
Case #: A094463
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 1 DCA
Division: 3
Opinion Date: 06/28/2002
Subsequent History: None

The minor admitted a residential burglary allegation in a petition filed in San Mateo County, and the case was transferred to San Francisco County, the minor’s residence. In San Francisco, the minor moved to withdraw his plea because he had been advised that if he admitted the burglary, he would be released. The San Francisco court refused to hear the motion, stating that it could not entertain a motion to withdraw a neighboring county’s plea. The appellate court here reversed and remanded for a hearing on the motion to withdraw the plea. A final order of transfer permanently removes the entire case from the original court. After transfer, the San Francisco court had jursidiction over the minor for all purposes, including the motion to withdraw the plea.
