In an appeal from a juvenile court's order declaring minor a ward of the court, the order is affirmed in part where: 1) the evidence was sufficient to find that defendant committed attempted robbery; and 2) the juvenile court acted within its discretion and did not violate either the state or federal Constitution in ordering defendant to continue to cooperate in his treatment by complying with his doctor's future prescriptions of medication for depression and social anxiety disorder. However, the judgment is modified in part where the Court of Appeal ordered that Defendant must continue to take only those medications prescribed for depression and social anxiety disorder.
