Name: People v. Lassa
Case #: F082168
Opinion Date: 01/12/2023
Attorney: Martin Baker
Summary

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 youth was a contributing factor in the commission of the offense.
