In re Anthony C., C048529A

Judgment of extended commitment to the California Youth Authority, based upon his admission he committed an act of oral copulation on an eight-year-old girl, is reversed where the evidence at trial was insufficient to prove defendant has serious difficulty controlling his dangerous behavior. Since double jeopardy bars retrial at an extended commitment hearing held under to Welfare & Institutions Code section 1800, defendant is ordered discharged from confinement.
