The juvenile respondent has been charged with one count each of Assault with Intent to do Great Bodily Harm and Felonious Assault. *

A preliminary hearing was held today and a $10,000/% bond with a tether was ordered. The respondent was ordered to have no contact with the victim or any witnesses. Her next court hearing is on July 18, 2023, at 1:30 p.m. before Referee Wanda Cal.
