Name: People v. Gholar
Case #: C093212
Opinion Date: 12/09/2022
Attorney: Stephen M. Lathrop

The Court of Appeal remanded for resentencing in light of legislative changes to Penal Code section 1170 made by Senate Bill No. 567 (2021-2022 Reg. Sess.), which, among other things, created a presumption in favor of a low prison term upon a showing that the defendant’s psychological trauma was a contributing factor in the commission of the offense.
