In re M.B.

Duenas does not apply to a mandatory minimum juvenile restitution fine.

The minor argued that ordering him to pay the $100 restitution fine violated due process because the juvenile court did not determine whether he had the ability to pay such a fine. However, the ruling in People v. Duenas (2019) 30 Cal.App.5th 1157 does not apply to a mandatory minimum juvenile restitution fine.
