In this juvenile case, the Court of Appeal agreed with appellant that the trial court prejudicially erred in concluding the first 8 minutes of the minor’s interview with police were non-custodial and admitting his un-Mirandized statements. The court reversed the juvenile court’s jurisdictional findings and dispositional order, and remanded for a new jurisdiction hearing, with directions to grant the motion to suppress the minor’s statements in their entirety.
