Mar. 30, 2023 – In re S.S. (3rd Dist., C097055)

In an appeal from an order transferring minor to adult criminal court (WIC 707), the Court of Appeal holds that AB 2361‘s amendments to WIC 707 raising the standard of proof and requiring a finding that the minor is not amenable to rehabilitation apply retroactively. Finding that a more favorable result is reasonably probable under the amended statute, the court remands the matter for a new transfer hearing.
