REYES
Holding: 
Affirmed.
Evidence supported court's finding that minor, age 16 at time of offense, who was found guilty of attempted first degree murder, vehicular hijacking, possession of stolen vehicle and aggravated battery, made knowing and intelligent waiver of his Miranda rights. Court was within its discretion in excluding minor's mother from courtroom as a potential witness. Minor's mother did not have the right to a separate attorney, and she lacked standing to challenge minor's motion to dismiss and adjudication of delinquency.(LAMPKIN and GORDON, concurring.)
