In re Z.A., D060033

Juvenile court's conviction of a minor-defendant for drug-related offenses is reversed and remanded, as the juvenile court committed reversible error in admitting statements that defendant made during a custodial interrogation after she had invoked her right to remain silent, and the government has not established that this error is harmless beyond a reasonable doubt. However, because evidence is sufficient to support the juvenile court's findings that the defendant knowingly transported marijuana and possessed marijuana for sale, retrial of defendant is not barred on remand.
