The State

December 09, 1987

The West Hollywood City Council has voted to amend its curfew law to conform with those of the city and county of Los Angeles, both of which urged the change in a countywide attempt to reduce the number of crimes committed by juveniles. The council voted 4 to 0 Monday to make it a misdemeanor for any person under 18 years old to "loiter, without lawful purpose, about the public streets, avenues, alleys, parks or other public places" between midnight and sunrise unless accompanied by a parent or guardian. The old law prohibited minors from loitering in public places only after they were closed and did not cover public streets or other areas. West Hollywood, which has few resident minors, revised the law "as a courtesy to other cities in the county," Councilman John Heilman said.
