Name: In re Trevor W.
Case #: E027461
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 4 DCA
Division: 2
Opinion Date: 04/27/2001
Subsequent History: None
Summary

When the juvenile court proceeds under Welfare and Institutions Code section 725 and places the minor on probation (not to exceed six months) without adjudging the minor a ward of the court, the court may not deprive a parent of the physical custody of the minor by imposing custody time. Thus, the court erred in purporting to order 210 days of custody in juvenile hall when it granted probation under section 725. First, Trevor had not been made a ward of the court and second, the statute was also violated because 210 days is longer than six months.
