In re Joshua R, 052965

In a case in which the juvenile court dismissed the minor's juvenile adjudication after he successfully completed probation, but the court declined to seal his record because of an ongoing probation condition stating he was not permitted to own a firearm before he turned 30 years old, the court's decision to not seal the minor's record is reversed where, although the Penal Code section addressing future firearm ownership for minors in his situation conflicts with the Welfare and Institutions Code section requiring the juvenile court to seal records upon the successful completion of probation, the statutes can be harmonized to effect the purposes of each.
