MULTIPLE CONVICTIONS FOR A SINGLE ACT OF RAPE?
In Craig (17 C2d 453), the Cal. Supremes barred multiple convictions of forcible rape and statutory rape for a single act. In Gonzalez (60 C4th 533), the Cal. Supremes distinguished Craig and held that a defendant can be convicted of both oral copulation with an unconscious person (PC 288a(f)), and oral copulation with an intoxicated person (PC 288a(i)), for a single act. The Cal. Supremes now decide that a defendant can be convicted of both rape of an intoxicated person (PC 261(a)(3)) and rape of an unconscious person (PC 261(a)(4)(A)) for a single act. Over an obviously correct dissent, the majority relies on the subdivisions of the rape [More…] »

by Gary Mandinach, Attorney at Law, California Appellate Project, Los Angeles, California

1. People v. Munoz (2016) Cal.App.5th , reported on November 21, 2016, in 2016 Los Angeles Daily Journal 11469, the First Appellate District, Division 1 reversed the superior court appellate department’s finding that Vehicle Code section 31 did not violated the First Amendment. The constitutional deficiencies in Vehicle Code section 31, which criminalizes making of false statements to law enforcement officers while they are engaged in the performance of their duties, may be cured by construing or reforming the section to include a materiality provision. The lack of instruction that the defendant could not be convicted of violating section 31 unless his false statements to police were material, was harmless because the questions the defendant was convicted of answering falsely, Ahave you been drinking?” and “where are you coming from?”, were obviously material to the investigation of whether defendant was driving while under the influence. The Court of Appeal found that the lower court erred in relying of United States v. Alvarez (2016) U.S. , [132 S.Ct. 2537] given the fact that section 31 does not target protected speech, and the section is not a content-based restriction.

2. People v. Selivanov (2016) Cal.App.5th , reported on November 21, 2016, in 2016 Los Angeles Daily Journal 11403, the Second Appellate District, Division 4 held that in the trial of charter school operators, who were husband and wife, for financial crimes, the embezzlement conviction was supported by substantial evidence. It was reasonable for the jury to infer fraudulent intent from the defendants= use of school credit card to pay for meals at “business meetings” that occurred late at night and on weekend afternoons, and from [More…] »

California Attorneys for Criminal Justice (CACJ) and the California Public Defenders’ Association (CPDA) are pleased to invite you to participate in the 2017 Capital Case Defense Seminar (CCDS).

The CCDS will also include sessions addressing murder and felony charges other than capital cases.

The CACJ/CPDA Capital Case Defense Seminar is the largest of its kind in the nation. CCDS is unique in that it offers lectures as well as specialized workshops that give participants the chance to brainstorm and exchange information with other participants. Experienced practitioners in any jurisdiction and those just entering the field can benefit from the lectures and workshops featuring experienced lawyers and experts, from both California and across the nation.

California Public Defenders Android Apps on Google Play

The CPDA Members App. The CPDA Members App was created to help build a closer-knit community among members. Members of CPDA who download the app can join conversations, share photos, learn about events, and locate contact information for all members.

The California Public Defenders Association (CPDA) is a nonprofit organization that serves as a resource center for its members who are all criminal defense attorneys – both private attorneys who practice criminal defense in California, and public defenders who are criminal defense attorneys employed by local county public defender agencies. The organization was formed over 40 years ago and today provides numerous on-site training programs through the year and in different locations held throughout the state of California, all designed exclusively for criminal defense attorneys who practice in California. Together, the two groups of criminal defense attorneys (private defenders and public defenders) comprise the membership of CPDA, which totals over 3,400 practicing criminal defense attorneys in California, in particular, but the membership is open to criminal defense attorneys in other states and several hundred from throughout the U.S. are associate members of CPDA.

Two options to download the CPDA Members App:

1. Download from the Google Play Store:
