Name: People v. Bauer
Case #: C095770
Opinion Date: 07/10/2023
Attorney: Julia Spikes

The Court of Appeal agreed the trial court violated Penal Code section 654 when it imposed and did not stay sentences on both a vandalism count based on breaking the front door window and on the trespass count based on appellant’s entering the house. Appellant was wrongfully punished twice for a course of conduct with a single intent and objective of entering the house without consent. The court vacated appellant’s sentence and remanded for a full resentencing hearing.
