1. Where a juvenile is charged as a delinquent in the juvenile court because of a criminal or quasi-criminal charge against him he must he tried by the court without a jury (Sec. 12 of the Act establishing Juvenile Courts as amended; Ga. L. 1968, pp. 1013, 1028; Code Ann. 24-2420), unless he elects to be tried as an adult as provided in Sec. 4 of the Act establishing juvenile courts as amended by the Act of 1968 (Ga. L. 1968, pp. 1013, 1021; Code Ann. 24-2409 (1)), which means trial in the court having jurisdiction of the criminal or quasi-criminal charges and not as a delinquent in the juvenile court.
2. The provisions of Sec. 12 of the Act establishing juvenile courts and providing for trial by the court without a jury is not violative of the Sixth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States (Code 1-806), or of Art. I, Sec. I., Par. V. of the Constitution of the State of Georgia (Code Ann. 2-105). Robinson v. State, 227 Ga. 140 (179 SE2d 248)
, answer by the Supreme Court to certified question from this court).
3. Accordingly, the juvenile court judge did not err in refusing the demand of the accused for a jury trial in the juvenile court.
