Name: People v. Moody
Case #: C037797
Opinion Date: 03/07/2002
Citation: 96 Cal.App.4th 987

Appellant was properly sentenced to the midterm of two years in state prison for attempted robbery. Penal Code section 213, subdivision (b) specifically provides a sentence of 16, 2, or 3 triad for attempted robbery. Section 664 does not apply to convictions for second degree robbery. However, the imposition of a full 10-year term for the section 12022.53 firearm enhancement was improper. The attempted robbery offense was imposed as a consecutive subordinate term for sentencing purposes. Therefore, the proper calculation should have been one-third of the 10-year period under section 1170.1, subdivision (a), which dominates the “notwithstanding any other law” language.
