Name: People v. Mejia
Case #: F081568
Opinion Date: 11/29/2022
Attorney: Derek K. Kowata
Summary

The Court of Appeal remanded for resentencing in light of legislative changes to Penal Code section 654 made by Assembly Bill No. 518 (2021-2022 Reg. Sess.), which now affords trial courts the discretion to choose the count on which to impose punishment, instead of having to choose the one that provides for the longest potential term of imprisonment.
