Name: In re Eldridge T.
Case #: A095878
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 1 DCA
Division: 4
Opinion Date: 07/29/2002
Subsequent History: Rev. granted 10/30/02; dismissed & remanded on 11/12/03

After the probation department was unable to find an ordered residential placement for the minor which would meet his needs, the court ordered his placement at CYA as the only place where his needs could be met. The court erred. The amendment of Welfare and Institution Code section 777 by Proposition 21 now requires that a more restrictive placement can be made only if the ward has violated a court order or violated a condition of probation not amounting to a crime.
