Name: People v. Luna
Case #: B164536
Opinion Date: 11/17/2003
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 2 DCA
Division: 5
Citation: 113 Cal.App.4th 395

The March 7, 2000, adoption of Proposition 21 modified the decision in People v. Rodriquez (1998) 17 Cal.4th 253, which previously held that an abstract of judgment showing simply a conviction for violation of Penal Code section 245, subdivision (a)(1) was not sufficient evidence that the defendant had previously been convicted of a serious felony. Since Proposition 21, personal use of a deadly weapon, is no longer required, and thus an abstract stating “ASSLT GBI W/DL WPN” was sufficient.
