Name: People v. Hammon
Case #: C097757
Opinion Date: 11/20/2023
Attorney: Theresa Osterman Stevenson

The Court of Appeal reversed the denial of appellant’s Penal Code section 290.5 petition to terminate sex offender registration. There was no evidence that “terminating the registration requirement considerably raised the threat to society because [defendant] was currently likely to reoffend.” (People v. Thai (2023) 90 Cal.App.5th 427, 433.) Given the denial was reversed for insufficient evidence, the People were not entitled to a second evidentiary hearing.
