In re Jose T., A128020

Juvenile court's jurisdictional and dispositional order in a Welfare and Institutions Code section 602 proceeding declaring wardship and committing the minor defendant to the Division of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) for aggravated assault, is vacated, as the juvenile court automatically, and erroneously, imposed a previously suspended DJJ commitment. On remand, the juvenile court is directed to evaluate the appropriate placement for the defendant including whether to impose the previously suspended DJJ commitment based upon current factors and circumstances.
