Name: People v. Wollschlager
Case #: B145828
Court: CA Court of Appeal
District 2 DCA
Division: 6
Citation: 99 Cal.App.4th 1303

The language of the Sexually Violent Predator Act (SVPA) as stated in CALJIC No. 4.19 meets the constitutional requirements of Kansas v. Crane (2002) 534 U.S. 407. A finding that a defendant qualifies as a sexually violent predator under the statute necessarily means the defendant has serious difficulty in controlling his behavior.
