Name: People v. Marconnett
Case #: C095774
Opinion Date: 06/28/2023
Attorney: Sangeeta Sinha
Summary

The Court of Appeal vacated appellant’s sentence and remanded for resentencing, holding that the trial court did not understand the scope of its discretion at sentencing. The court also found that appellant’s the personal use enhancement must be reversed because the jury was prejudicially instructed with an incorrect legal theory, where the jury was informed that a knife was an inherently dangerous weapon. As such, the court reversed the personal use of a deadly weapon enhancement.
