Child's assent to being waived to adult court does not eliminate duty of court to make findings of fact supporting waiver. State ex rel Juvenile Dept. v. Heising, 29 Or App 903, 565 P2d 1105 (1977)

Where oral findings demonstrated proper consideration of statutory factors, failure to make specific and detailed written findings did not invalidate remand. State ex rel Juvenile Dept. v.
