In Bank. (Opinion by Wright, C. J., expressing the unanimous view of the court.)
Peter Bull, Edward Steinman, Robert L. Walker, Roy Dankman and Davis, York & Dankman for Petitioner.
No appearance for Respondent.
Joseph P. Busch, District Attorney, Harry Wood, Robert J. Lord, Arnold T. Guminski and Daniel L. Bershin, Deputy District Attorneys, for Real Party in Interest.
OPINION OF THE COURT
WRIGHT, C. J.
Petitioner seeks to prohibit his prosecution for murder under the general criminal law. The respondent court, sitting as a juvenile court, directed petitioner's prosecution as an adult in proceedings which were materially similar to those in Bryan v. Superior Court, Ante, p. 575 [102 Cal.Rptr. 831, 498 P.2d 1079]. Petitioner raises no contentions not disposed of in that case. [7 Cal.3d 591]
For the reasons stated in Bryan, the alternative writ heretofore issued is discharged and the petition for a peremptory writ is denied.
