Name: People v. Larned
Case #: C098071
Opinion Date: 05/15/2024
Attorney: Laura R. Vavakin

The Court of Appeal agreed with the parties that the trial court erred by imposing a one-year term for possession of burglary tools (Pen. Code § 466) because the maximum term for that offense is six months. Given the trial court’s clear intent to impose the maximum term for the offense, the Court of Appeal modified the judgment to reflect the six-month term. (See § 1260; People v. Jefferson (2019) 38 Cal.App.5th 399, 409 [“remand is not appropriate when it would be an idle act”].)
