Appeal from the Circuit Court of Cook County; the Hon. John W.
Rogers, Judge, presiding.
JUSTICE WHITE DELIVERED THE OPINION OF THE COURT:
Rehearing denied November 18, 1986.
Two delinquency petitions were filed in the juvenile division of the circuit court of Cook County in reference to R.D., one containing two counts of battery, and the instant petition which alleges the offense of armed robbery. R.D. appeals from orders entered in the robbery case. That petition originally included the name of R.D.'s mother, who was his custodial parent, and the name of his stepfather who divorced R.D.'s mother 12 years prior to the proceedings in this case. The whereabouts of the natural father are unknown. He has no contact with the minor, and there is some doubt as to whether the mother knows his identity.
The record shows that on June 9, 1983, R.D. was present but no parent or guardian appeared. The court ordered the issuance of summons and continued the case to June 27, 1983, for arraignment and plea. On June 27, 1983, again no parent or guardian was present and the following colloquy took place between the judge and the juvenile:
