Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 2 DCA
Division: 1
Opinion Date: 06/05/2003
Subsequent History: None

The appellate court held that the Governor’s decision to deny parole was not supported by some evidence. The court concluded that the Governor’s summary of the offense was not supported by the record, nor were the conclusions that petitioner had a significant criminal record, was presently addicted to drugs, received four disciplinary reports in prison, or had minimized his participation in the crime to that of a mere bystander. (2-1 decision).
