SB 1437–Record of Conviction When Considering Prima Facie Showing of Eligibility and Timing of Right to Appointed Counsel

Case Name: People v. Lewis (2021) 11 Cal.5th 952
Case #: S260598
Last Updated: August 18, 2021

(1) May superior courts consider the record of conviction in determining whether a defendant has made a prima facie showing of eligibility for relief under Penal Code section 1170.95? (2) When does the right to appointed counsel arise under Penal Code section 1170.95, subdivision (c)?

Held: When a defendant files a complying petition for resentencing under Penal Code section 1170.95, the court is required to appoint counsel, if requested; the issue is briefed; and then the court makes one prima facie determination of eligibility for relief. In 2012, Lewis was convicted of first degree murder based on a gang killing. After Senate Bill No. 1437 passed, he petitioned for resentencing and requested counsel. The trial court considered the record of conviction without appointing counsel and summarily denied the petition. The Court of Appeal affirmed. Review was granted. Held: Reversed and remanded. SB 1437, eliminated natural and probable consequences liability for murder and limited the scope of the felony murder rule, to require that a defendant who was not the actual killer and lacked an intent to kill, be a major participant in the underlying felony who acted with reckless indifference to human life. It added section 1170.95, which provides a procedure for convicted murderers who could not be convicted under the amended law to seek resentencing. A petition sets forth a prima facie case for relief where it alleges that a charging document was filed against the petitioner that allowed the prosecution to proceed under a now invalid theory of murder; that the petitioner was convicted of murder following a trial or accepted a plea offer in lieu of a trial at which the petitioner could be convicted of murder; and that the petitioner could not be convicted of murder under the amended law. The trial court reviews the petition to determine whether it is facially sufficient. Once that prima facie showing is made and the petitioner has requested counsel, the statutory language and legislative intent of section 1170.95, subdivision (c) make clear that petitioners are entitled to the appointment of counsel and the opportunity for briefing.

The trial court can rely on the record of conviction in determining whether the prima facie showing is made. Only after the appointment of counsel and the opportunity for briefing may the superior court consider the record of conviction to determine whether “the petitioner makes a prima facie showing that he or she is entitled to relief.” (Pen. Code, § 1170.95, subd. (c).) In reviewing any part of the record of conviction at the prima facie stage, a trial court should not engage in factfinding involving the weighing of evidence or the exercise of discretion.

The state standard of prejudice (People v. Watson (1956) 46 Cal.2d 818), applies to trial court error in deciding resentencing petitions. “There is no unconditional state or federal constitutional right to counsel to pursue collateral relief from a judgment of conviction.” “For the same reasons, a petitioner is not constitutionally entitled to counsel at the outset of the subdivision (c) stage of the section 1170.95 petitioning process.” Section 1170.95 “created a purely statutory right to counsel that attaches before the issuance of an order to show cause.” Thus, the trial court’s error in summarily dismissing Lewis’s facially sufficient petition without the appointment of counsel is an error of state law, reviewable under the Watson harmless error test. Lewis must show there is a reasonable probability that in the absence of the error he would have obtained a more favorable result. On remand, the Court of Appeal shall make an evaluation of prejudice under Watson in the first instance. This case was decided on 7/26/2021.

Review on this issue was also granted with briefing deferred in:
