Name: People v. Rivas
Case #: C094563
Opinion Date: 09/07/2023
Attorney: Patricia L. Brisbois

The Court of Appeal agreed with the parties that (1) one of appellant’s two convictions for false imprisonment must be reversed because the victim was continuously restrained, and (2) any unpaid portion of the 10 percent surcharge on appellant’s $300 restitution fine must be vacated pursuant to Assembly Bill No. 177 (2021-2022 Reg. Sess.), which eliminated certain fees in criminal cases and rendered the unpaid balance of any such fees unenforceable and uncollectible.
