In re Walter P., C056550

In a case where a juvenile court found that a minor-defendant violated Health and Safety Code section 11357, the imposition of special conditions of probation, requiring defendant to be detained on home supervision for 45 days and to complete 8 days in the Juvenile Work Project program, is stricken as such conditions were legally unauthorized in light of the statutory language in section 11357(b) that does not authorize any type of "confinement".
