In re Kevin A.Annotate this Case
Kevin A. appeals from an order granting the Public Conservator's petition to establish conservatorship for a one-year period. The court found him to be gravely disabled under the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act, Welf. & Inst. Code, 5000 et seq. In light of the recent California Supreme Court decisions in People v. Blackburn and People v. Tran, the court agreed with Kevin that the trial court erred in accepting a waiver of jury trial over his objection and request. Accordingly, the court reversed the order granting the petition.
