OPINION

On appeal, J.V., a minor, raises a number of issues related to gang registration under Penal Code section 186.30.*fn1 We conclude the juvenile court properly imposed the mandatory registration requirement.

1. Factual and Procedural Background

In September 2007, J.V. was charged by juvenile wardship petition (Welf. & Inst. Code, § 602) in Los Angeles County with contempt of court, in violation of section 166, subdivision (a)(4),*fn2 for willingly disobeying an injunction against associating with fellow gang members of the Olive Street gang. According to the probation report, the Pomona police detained J.V. in July 2007 after he was observed in the company of two other minors, all three wearing gang attire. J.V. had previously been served with the gang injunction order. Initially, J.V. denied any affiliation with the Olive Street gang. He admitted having a prior association with the moniker "Brainz."

In February 2008, the court declared J.V. a ward of the court and placed him on probation in his mother's custody. The court imposed, and stayed, pending a further hearing, the probation condition that defendant register as a gang member under section 186.30. The court dismissed the registration requirement in March 2008.

In September 2008, J.V. was charged with three probation violations. He admitted violating the prohibition against wearing gang clothing or displaying or using gang items. The court dismissed the other two alleged violations, continued J.V. as a ward of the court, and continued the matter for a dispositional hearing on the gang registration requirement.

In October 2008 at the contested dispositional hearing, the People asked the San Bernardino court to take judicial notice of the gang injunction that had been ...
