                        FEBRUARY 23, 2012

and to amend Section 355 of the Welfare and Institutions Code,
relating to child abuse reporting.


	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 1264, Vargas. Child abuse reporting: mandated reporters.
   Existing law, the Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act, requires
a mandated reporter, as defined, to report whenever he or she, in his
or her professional capacity or within the scope of his or her
employment, has knowledge of or observed a child whom the mandated
reporter knows or reasonably suspects has been the victim of child
abuse or neglect. Failure to report an incident is a crime punishable
by imprisonment in a county jail for a period of up to 6 months, a
fine of $1,000, or by both.
   This bill would include in the list of individuals who are
mandated reporters any athletic coach, including, but not limited to,
an assistant coach or a graduate assistant involved in coaching at a
public or private postsecondary institution.
   By imposing the mandated reporting requirement on a new class of
persons, for whom failure to report specified conduct is a crime,
this bill would impose a state-mandated local program.
   This bill would incorporate additional changes in Section 11165.7
of the Penal Code, proposed by AB 1434, AB 1435, AB 1713, and AB
1817, to be operative only if AB 1434, AB 1435, AB 1713, or AB 1817
and this bill are chaptered and become effective on or before January
1, 2013, and this bill is chaptered last.
   The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local
agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.
   This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this
act for a specified reason.

circumstances or acts that are alleged to bring the minor within the
jurisdiction of the juvenile court is admissible and may be received
in evidence. Proof by a preponderance of evidence must be adduced to
support a finding that the minor is a person described by Section
300. Objections that could have been made to evidence introduced
shall be deemed to have been made by any parent or guardian who is
present at the hearing and unrepresented by counsel, unless the court
finds that the parent or guardian has made a knowing and intelligent
waiver of the right to counsel. Objections that could have been made
to evidence introduced shall be deemed to have been made by any
unrepresented child.

   (2) The preparer of the social study shall be made available for
cross-examination upon a timely request by any party. The court may
deem the preparer available for cross-examination if it determines
that the preparer is on telephone standby and can be present in court
within a reasonable time of the request.
   (3) The court may grant a reasonable continuance not to exceed 10
days upon request by any party if the social study is not provided to
the parties or their counsel within a reasonable time before the
hearing.
   (c) (1) If any party to the jurisdictional hearing raises a timely
objection to the admission of specific hearsay evidence contained in
a social study, the specific hearsay evidence shall not be
sufficient by itself to support a jurisdictional finding or any
ultimate fact upon which a jurisdictional finding is based, unless
the petitioner establishes one or more of the following exceptions:
   (A) The hearsay evidence would be admissible in any civil or
criminal proceeding under any statutory or decisional exception to
the prohibition against hearsay.
   (B) The hearsay declarant is a minor under 12 years of age who is
the subject of the jurisdictional hearing. However, the hearsay
statement of a minor under 12 years of age shall not be admissible if
the objecting party establishes that the statement is unreliable
because it was the product of fraud, deceit, or undue influence.
   (C) The hearsay declarant is a peace officer as defined by Chapter
4.5 (commencing with Section 830) of Title 3 of Part 2 of the Penal
Code, a health practitioner described in paragraphs (22) to (29),
inclusive, of subdivision (a) of Section 11165.7 of the Penal Code, a
social worker licensed pursuant to Chapter 14 (commencing with
Section 4991) of Division 2 of the Business and Professions Code, or
a teacher who holds a credential pursuant to Chapter 2 (commencing
with Section 44200) of Part 25 of Division 3 of Title 2 of the
Education Code. For the purpose of this subdivision, evidence in a
declaration is admissible only to the extent that it would otherwise
be admissible under this section or if the declarant were present and
testifying in court.
   (D) The hearsay declarant is available for cross-examination. For
purposes of this section, the court may deem a witness available for
cross-examination if it determines that the witness is on telephone
standby and can be present in court within a reasonable time of a
request to examine the witness.
   (2) For purposes of this subdivision, an objection is timely if it
identifies with reasonable specificity the disputed hearsay evidence
and it gives the petitioner a reasonable period of time to meet the
objection prior to a contested hearing.
   (d) This section shall not be construed to limit the right of any
party to the jurisdictional hearing to subpoena a witness whose
statement is contained in the social study or to introduce admissible
evidence relevant to the weight of the hearsay evidence or the
credibility of the hearsay declarant.
