Name: People v. Brownlee
Case #: C093747
Opinion Date: 05/26/2022
Attorney: Allan Junker
Summary

The Court of Appeal agreed with the parties that in denying the appellant’s petition for resentencing under Penal Code section 1170.95 (now section 1172.6), the trial court erred in applying a felony murder rule analysis when the appellant was tried for second degree murder as an aider and abettor under the natural and probable consequences doctrine. The court remanded the matter for a new hearing.
