A160776

[Published Opinion] The Court of Appeal held that the juvenile court did not have authority under any provision of the Welfare and Institutions Code to require the minor or his family to pay for the Batterer’s Intervention Program, imposed as a condition of the minor’s probation. According to the Court, due to concerns about imposing costs on families that are already struggling, Senate Bill No. 190 (2017-2018 Reg. Sess.) (Stats. 2017, ch. 678) amended the Welfare and Institutions code to make most liability provisions inapplicable where, as here, the minor has been deemed a ward of the juvenile court.
