The question here is whether a juvenile court may dismiss a wardship petition in the interests of justice and commit a juvenile way to the Division of Juvenile Justice on the basis of a prior sustained petition, even though Welfare and Institutions Code section 733 prohibits commitment unless “the most recent offense alleged in any petition and admitted or found to be true by the court” is an offense specified in subdivision (c) of that section and the offense alleged in the dismissed petition was not one of those specified offenses? This brief was written to provide additional information in response to arguments made by the respondent that may assist the court in deciding this case.
