In re Damian M., D055552

Juvenile court's denial of minor-defendant's request for deferred entry of judgment (DEJ), after admitting that he possessed the 10.1 pounds of marijuana for sale, is affirmed as the court was well within its discretion in denying DEJ to the minor under the circumstances of the offense he committed and the criminal sophistication shown by his conduct. Furthermore, a probation condition requiring the minor's parents to participate in the minor's school program is a legitimate remedial measure designed to aid in preventing further delinquent behavior by the minor.
