Name: Motion for Acquittal
Summary

The Court of Appeal agreed with the parties that the trial court erred in denying appellant’s motion for entry of a judgment of acquittal pursuant to Penal Code section 1118.1. The offense of failure to update annual registration as a sex offender (Pen. Code, § 290.012, subd. (a)) required the People to prove that appellant resided in California during the relevant time period. They did not prove this element of the offense, requiring acquittal.
