R. C. L., A Child, Petitioner, v. State of Florida, Respondent.

Charlie Cofer, Public Defender, and Elizabeth Hogan Webb, Assistant Public Defender, Jacksonville, for Petitioner. Ashley Moody, Attorney General, Tallahassee, for Respondent.


Not final until disposition of any timely and authorized motion under Fla. R. App. P. 9.330 or 9.331.

Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus-Original Jurisdiction.

Charlie Cofer, Public Defender, and Elizabeth Hogan Webb, Assistant Public Defender, Jacksonville, for Petitioner.

Ashley Moody, Attorney General, Tallahassee, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM

The Court denies the petition for writ of habeas corpus on the merits. Section 985.24(3), Florida Statutes (2021), prohibits secure detention care for a child alleged to be dependent under chapter 39. This language indicates that secure detention care cannot be used as a remedy in a dependency case. This is not a dependency case, but a delinquency proceeding involving a juvenile who purportedly has been adjudicated as a dependent child already.

Roberts, Osterhaus, and Tanenbaum, JJ., concur. 1
