US v. Sealed Appellant 1, No. 08-30284

By FindLaw Staff on December 31, 2009 2:48 PM

In two juvenile defendants' appeal from the district court's order transferring them to adult status for trial, the order is affirmed in part where, given the risk factors involved, transferring one defendant to adult status was not an abuse of discretion.  However, the order is reversed in part where one defendant could not be prosecuted as an adult for any charges arising from the carjackings that transpired before his fifteenth birthday.
