Name: People v. Norris
Case #: B149731
Opinion Date: 01/22/2002
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 2 DCA
Division: 6
Citation: 95 Cal.App.4th 475

Penal Code sections 1118 and 1118.2 , which provide for acquittals of offenses, do not apply to status-based, recidivist allegations such as prior prison term allegations. Thus, the trial court’s purported finding of “not guilty” on a prior prison term was not binding, and it was free to reexamine the issue.
