In re C.C., No. C061230

Juvenile court's determination that the defendant sent threatening or obscene texts to his former girlfriend and placing him on informal probation and order to write a 500-word essay on the Columbine High School shootings is reversed as there is lack of evidence to support the conclusion that the text messages were threatening or obscene as those terms are used in section 653m.
