Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 3 DCA
Opinion Date: 09/05/2001
Subsequent History: Rehearing Granted June 25, 2001. Opinion on Rehearing September 5, 2001
Summary

The Butte County Superior Court ordered defendant, at sentencing on an offense committed in Butte County while on parole from Kern County, to report to the Kern County parole office upon his release from prison. The appellate court held this was error, since the applicable statutes give this authority to the parole board and not the sentencing court where the defendant does not have enough credit to satisfy the term imposed.
