People v. R.P., No. B208425

Juvenile court order continuing defendant as a ward of the state and imposing a probation condition prohibiting him from possessing any dangerous or deadly weapon is affirmed where: 1) there is no merit to defendant's claim that the probation condition is unconstitutionally vague as the condition has a plain common-sense meaning and is sufficiently precise for defendant to know what is required of him; and 2) the mere possibility peace officers may attempt to enforce the probation condition as a strict liability offense does not render the condition unconstitutional.
