Name: People v. Gonzalez
Case #: C099813
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 3 DCA
Opinion Date: 06/28/2024
Summary

Trial court erred in denying compassionate release (PC 1172.2) on the ground that defendant posed an “unreasonable risk” of committing a future super strike, as the risk assessment failed to consider defendant’s (diminished) “current physical and mental condition” (PC 1172.2(b)). Defendant was also permitted to reside within 35 miles of victim, despite her objection under PC 3003(f), because the statute only applies to parolees.
