In re J.V., No. E047553

Juvenile court's imposition of a requirement for gang registration under Penal Code section 186.30 is affirmed where: 1) the juvenile court did not abuse or fail to exercise its discretion in finding defendant's violation of the gang injunction was gang related under section 186.30 and requiring him to register; and 2) defendant cannot demonstrate prejudice by showing he would not have entered into the plea if he had received an advisement about gang registration.
