In re A.O. CA2/5
In this juvenile dependency case, the juvenile court found 12-year-old A.O. came within its jurisdiction under Welfare and Institutions Code section 300 because of risk of harm due to conduct by both his parents and removed him from his parents’ custody pursuant to section 361, subdivision (c). Crystal D. (mother), the noncustodial parent at the time of removal, appeals the juvenile court’s jurisdictional and dispositional findings and orders. Mother contends the allegations of her conduct in the jurisdictional findings were not supported by sufficient evidence. She also contends the court erred by “removing” A.O. from her custody under section 361, subdivision (c) because she was a noncustodial parent, and the matter must be remanded for a hearing on whether A.O. should be placed with her pursuant to section 361.2, subdivision (a), the statute governing placement with noncustodial parents. We affirm.
