US v. Juvenile Male, No. 06-30270 (12-14-06). A juvenile defendant had been placed on probation for aggravated sex abuse until his 21st birthday. He violated the terms of probation, and, upon revocation, the court sentenced him "pursuant to the Sentencing Reform Act" to his 21st birthday. The 9th vacated and remanded. The 9th (Smith joined by Goodwin and Fisher) held that once the juvenile was sentenced under the Juvenile Delinquent Act, he stays under it. The court had to fashion a sentence under the JDA.

Congratulations to AFPD Steve Babcock of D. Mont.
