In re Gilbert R., G045929

A juvenile court's order sustaining the district attorney's delinquency petition and placing the minor on supervised probation based on his misdemeanor possession of a switchblade knife, is reversed where the knife possessed by the minor defendant, falls under the Legislature's express exception identifying knives that do not constitute a switchblade, and therefore the evidence does not support the juvenile court's delinquency finding.
