OUJI-CR 4-87C-1



Irreparably Corrupt -- No meaningful possibility exists that rehabilitation will make the defendant fit to reenter society.

Permanent Incorrigibility -- Serious misbehavior that proves defendant is the rare juvenile who has shown an inability to reform and will forever be a danger to society because of his total indifference to the life and safety of others.

Transient Immaturity -- The defendant's conduct was the result of temporary youth-related factors, such as chronological age, immaturity, impetuosity, and a failure to appreciate risks and consequences that suggest a possibility of rehabilitation.
