Name: People v. Keating
Case #: B210240
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 2 DCA
Division: 7
Opinion Date: 06/07/2010
Subsequent History: rev. granted 9/22/10, (S184354)
Summary

This court joins a growing majority of appellate courts holding that the amendment of Penal Code section 4019, effective January 25, 2010 is retroactive.
Credit card theft, forgery, commercial burglary, and grand theft convictions were found to be supported by sufficient evidence even if that evidence was mainly circumstantial. A challenge to the evidence to support specific intent of the crimes charged and an argument that any crimes were committed by the business partner who was irresponsible about credit involved credibility conflicts and evidentiary conflicts which were resolved by the jury as trier of fact.
